Sen. Wiley Outlines Program for U.S. Middle East Policy

Senator Alexander Wiley, ranking Republican member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, outlined today a basic program of short and long range goals in the American Middle East policy. Speaking at a dinner of the American Friends of the Weizmann Institute, Sen. Wiley said that the following goals appear “imperatively” advisable:

1. Direct talks between Israeli and Egyptian leaders under UN auspices and insistence by the UN on the achievement and maintenance of a geniune cease fire; 2. Prompt United States consideration of export of defensive arms, at appropriately low prices, to Israel, in order to assure equitable balance of strength; 3. Further exploration of the type of security pact, guaranteeing just boundary arrangements, such as was proposed by Secretary of State Dulles.
