Israeli Delegation to Go to Moscow; Will Negotiate Trade Pact

An Israeli commercial delegation will leave soon for Moscow to negotiate a trade agreement, it was reported here by Shmuel Eliashiv, Israel Minister to Moscow, prior to his return to his post after a leave in Israel.

The delegation will be composed of three representatives of the citrus marketing board who have been waiting for some time for visas to enter the Soviet Union. They hope to negotiate substantial orders for citrus fruits and to buy timber for fruit packing cases. A shortage of such cases cut the number of cases of fruit which Israel exported last year.
