Israel Diplomat Confers with Assistant Secretary of State on Korea

Israel Charge d’Affaires Moshe Koren discussed the Korean situation with Acting Assistant Secretary of State Raymond Hare at a meeting which lasted over an hour.

Mr. Koren pointed out, however, that the purpose of his visit to the State Department was not to inform the American Government of Israel’s condemnation of North Korean aggression. This expression, he said, was communicated directly from Israel to United Nations Secretary-General Trygve Lie. The Charge d’Affaires was accompanied by Colonel Chaim Herzog, chief Israel military, air, and naval attache in the U. S.

(A report from Cairo stated that the United States Government had communicated its “shock” over the Egyptian Government’s abstention on the U.N. Security Council’s Korean resolution to the Egyptian Foreign Minister, Mohammed Salan Eddin Bey. The dispatch said that American Ambassador Jefferson Caffery had spent an hour with Eddin Bey during which he informed the Arab leader that Egypt’s present attitude “would not encourage us to help Egypt if the occasion arises on other matters.”)
