The Israel Cabinet at an extraordinary session held at the residence of President Chain Weizmann at Rehovoth today adopted a resolution expressing support of the United Nations Security Council resolution calling upon all nations to assist South Korea. (See Law Success developments on Page 3.)

Immediately after the session the following statement was issued by the Cabinet: “The Israel Government opposes and condemns aggression whenever it occurs and from whatever quarter it emanates. In fulfillment of the United Nations Charter, Israel supports the Security Council in its efforts to put an end to the breach of the peace in Korea and to restore peace in that area. The government hopes that the United Nations will continue to endeavor to align all great nations in a common effort for the safeguarding of world peace.”

U.S. Ambassador James G. McDonald today called at the Israel Foreign Ministry to deliver a note informing the Israel Government that the United States had imposed a blockade on the coast of Korea, in accordance with the Security Council resolution.

The Cabinet session, over which the President presided, was originally called as a farewell gesture to Dr. Weizmann who leaves for a European vacation Wednesday.
