Israel Sends Strong Delegation to United Nations General Assembly

Download PDF for this date

Israel is sending what seems here to be a particularly strong delegation to the tenth General Assembly which convenes Sept 20.

The list made public today by the Israel delegation showed that Abba S. Eban, Israel’s Ambassador to Washington, will once again carry the double burden he has had in the last few years by heading his country’s delegation to the General Assembly.

Others on the delegation will be David Hacohen, Israel Ambassador to Burma; Ishar Harari, a member of the Knesset; Gideon Raphael, Foreign Ministry counselor on the Middle East and United Nations political affairs; Emil Najar, director of the West European Department at the Foreign Ministry; Dr. Moshe Tov, head of the Foreign Ministry’s Latin American Department; Dr. Giora Lotan, director of National Insurance; Mordecai R. Kidron; Arthur Liveran and Dr. Jacob Robinson.

Mr. Kidron is the Israel delegation’s permanent deputy, frequently acting as head of the delegation in the absence of Mr. Eban. Mr. Liveran is also a member of the permanent delegation. Dr. Hacohen, Mr. Harari, Dr. Tov and Dr. Robinson were on Israel’s delegation to the General Assembly last year.
