Download PDF for this date

A protest against the election of Egypt as member of the Council of the International Wheat Conference now taking place here was voiced today at the conference by Chaim Margalith, Israel economic attache who is representing the Jewish State at the parley.

“I believe that many members of this assembly feel like myself that a country bound to a policy of boycott against fellow members is not eligible for membership in the Council” the Israeli representative said. He emphasized that the Egyptian Government has been obstructing essential goods cargoes from reaching their destination in Israel.
