WASHINGTON (Apr. 15)
The statement issued this week by the State Department expressing the hope that cooperation rather than force would characterize the relations of the countries of the Middle East expressed precisely what the Israel Government has been trying to emphasize all along, Israel Ambassador Abba Eban told Assistant Secretary of State Henry A. Byroade yesterday.
Mr. Eban added that Israel only hoped her neighbors would come to understand the necessity for direct cooperation. Later, he made known that he will make an address in the near future in which might be found Israel’s view of the relationship of the state with world Jewry and other subjects mentioned by Assistant Secretary of State Henry A. Byroade last week at Dayton, Ohio.
