Cabinet Discusses Israel’s Position in World Affairs

The Israel Cabinet last night discussed Israel’s position in world affairs and its relations with various powers. A Cabinet spokesman, however, refused to elaborate on this announcement.

The spokesman revealed that a committee of Ministers dealing with economic matters had considered plans for using Yarkon River water for irrigation purposes in the Negev. Finally, the Cabinet appointed Lord Nathan as its representative on the permanent arbitration commission established under the terms of the Israel-German reparations agreement.
