Foreign Minister Georges Bidault this week-end received Israeli Minister Yaacov Tsur in what was described as a “most cordial” interview concerning the Israel-Arab conflict and its consideration by the United Nations Security Council.

It is understood that M. Bidault was deeply concerned with Israel’s desire to relax the tensions along its borders and its desire for a final peace settlement with the Arabs. There is no doubt in informed circles here that despite the French Government’s overriding concerns with the Indo-China and European situations, it is vitally interested in the Israel-Arab situation and its effect on the Middle East.
