Israel Warns Against Private Negotiations with Germany on Imports

The Israel Government today issued a warning to all persons here and abroad who intend to start or who have started negotiations with Germany for the importation of German goods into Israel within the framework of the West German-Israel reparations agreement.

The Israel Government asked that such negotiations be postponed for the time being, to avoid possible “harm to the respective negotiators.” The communique added that “when and if the necessity arises the government will consider and decide on the use of the reparations sums.”
