Any American arms that may be furnished to Iraq “will never be used for aggressive purposes” and statements to the contrary are “Zionist propaganda which does not serve either American interest or world peace,” Dr. M. F, Jamali, chief of the Iraqi delegation at the United Nations, declared here today,

Dr. Jamali said that “a violent campaign against United States policy of arming the Arabs” was carried on during the last election campaign in this country by “the Zionists and their friends.” His statement listed seven points, which characterized Iraq as a country with a stable regime, modern, progressive, peace-loving, with “no aggressive intentions toward any quarter.”
