Download PDF for this date

Israel may now purchase all types of arms in Britian except those in short supply, an authoritative Foreign Office source stated today. He asserted that the principle that Israel could buy arms had been established and that details now depend on negotiations between Israel and the British Supply Minister.

Israel submitted to the Supply Ministry some months ago a list of the arms sought here. It is expected that these negotiations will soon be resumed.
