Arab-israel Situation to Be Discussed at Big Powers Parley

Highly-placed Foreign Office sources said today that a discussion of the Arab-Israel situation and Western defense plans in the Middle Eastern area will be part of the agenda requested by Britain for the forthcoming Big Three conference at Bermuda, which is scheduled to open on Dec. 4.

These sources pictured the British Government as determined to achieve a joint approach among the Western Powers on Middle East problems–an approach which it had believed near three weeks ago but which now seems as distant as ever to the Foreign Offices. These second thoughts are due to what the Foreign Office Office considers American “wavering” on Israel.
