Defense of Israel’s position on the Arab refugees was voiced in the Netherlands Parliament as the Foreign Minister replied to questions during a foreign policy debate.

The Minister, Dr. Josef Luns, said that Israel is too small a state to readmit the Palestine refugees. He also stated that Holland could do nothing about this situation and that “time alone will bring a solution.”
