Moscow Warns Israel Against Concluding Pact with United States

Download PDF for this date

The Soviet Government newspaper “Izvestia” has warned Israel against concluding any defense alliance with the United States, the New York Times reported from Moscow.

The Times dispatch said that “Izvestia” said that such a pact would be contradictory to the Israel undertaking given the USSR in 1953. The Soviet newspaper reminded Israel that in that undertaking, which restored Soviet-Israel diplomatic relations which had been ruptured by the USSR in the wake of the bombing of its legation in Tel Aviv, Israel said that she would not enter into any pact that has aggressive aims against the Soviet Union.
