Israel Excluded from United Nations Parley on Food Which Opens Today in Egypt

Israel will protest against the exclusion of its delegates by the Egyptian Government from a United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization conference which opens in Cairo tomorrow, it was learned today.

Since the establishment of a F.A.O. regional office in Cairo, the Egyptians have denied access to the Israelis. The Israel protest will be based on the tolerance by the United Nations F.A.O. of discrimination by one U.N. member against another, behavior which is contrary to the principles of the world organization.

Israel has been forced to look to the Rome F.A.O. office for services she would normally obtain from the Cairo office which handles the problems of the Near Eastern region.
