Arming of Arabs Would Not Solve Middle East Problems, Envoy Says

Arming of the Arab states cannot further “a positive and constructive solution of Middle East problems,” Dr. Ezra Yoran, new Minister of Israel to the Netherlands, said here today.

He told the 52nd annual convention of the Dutch Zionist Association that Israel would continue to protest against Egypt’s closure of the Suez Canal to Israel shipping and against the trial of the 12 remaining Jews in the Cairo espionage case.
