The Egyptian Government has suggested that the Eastern Mediterranean Regional Office of the World Health Organization, which was scheduled to meet in Alexandria this week, hold its conference in Geneva, Reuters reported today from Cairo. It is believed that Egypt’s desire to change the meeting place of the W.H.O. stems from unwillingness on her part to admit Israel representatives to the parley.
