Arab-israel Peace Not Yet in Sight, Trygve Lie Reports to Assembly

United Nations Secretary General Trygve Lie, in his report to the forthcoming General Assembly which opens here next week, emphasizes that there is “no solution yet in sight” for peace between Israel and the Arab states.

The report, which was made public today, gives detailed consideration to the rise of nationalism in the Middle East and points out that while progress had been made through United Nations action in some sections of the world, no solution has been found in Palestine.

Mr. Lie stressed in his report the needs of underdeveloped countries and made a strong appeal for technical assistance. He felt that despite the armaments program, the great powers could provide one billion dollars a year for the economic development of the less well-off countries.
