The Yugoslav Government has agreed to pay global compensation for nationalized property of Yugoslav Jews, it was announced today following the conclusion of negotiations here between representatives of the Yugoslav and Israel Governments.

An agreement to this effect was signed here by Dr. Ladislaw Serb on behalf of Yugoslavia and Eli Nathan on behalf of Israel. Although the details of the agreement were not made known for the time being, it was indicated that the Yugoslav Government had agreed to pay compensation for property of those Jews who left the country before 1948 and that the payment will be made through Israel.
