Download PDF for this date

The final version of the Foreign Aid bill approved by Congress this week-end may include only about $40,000,000 in economic and technical assistance for Israel. The previous year’s Foreign Aid grant to Israel totalled $52,000,000.

The entire Near Eastern region is to get $115,000,000. Of this amount, the State Department said the Arabs will get the larger share. Exact allocations for individual states have not been specified because the State Department expressed a desire to keep the program as “flexible” as possible.
