Socialist International Expresses Concern over Middle East Situation

Download PDF for this date

Anxiety over the situation in the Middle East, resulting from the flow of arms to the Arab states, dominated the proceedings of the Bureau of the Socialist International which concluded its meeting here.

The meeting decided to invite member national movements to launch immediately an intensive campaign to preserve the peace in the Middle East. The form and content of these campaigns were left to each individual party, but the British Labor Party’s program, issued last week, was greeted with approval by a number of speakers at the meeting, most of whom also expressed sympathy with Israel’s problems.
