Dr. Shmuel Eliashiv, director of the East European division of the Israel Foreign Ministry, said today his visit to the Soviet capital is purely a courtesy call. He expects to study the work of the Israel legation here, just as he did in other East European capitals he recently visited, he declared. The Israel official plans to remain in Moscow about a fortnight. No arrangements for his meeting with Soviet officials have as yet been made.
