British Commonwealth Prime Ministers Discuss Arab-israel Problem

Download PDF for this date

Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden is believed to have put forth the British view of the Israel-Arab problem and the Baghdad Pact at a meeting of Commonwealth Prime Ministers here this week-end. The session was devoted to a discussion of the Middle East.

While officials stressed that there was no question of any decision having been taken at the meeting, one expected outcome of Sir Anthony’s outline of the British viewpoint was that Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru could go on to his meeting with Yugoslav President Marshal Tito and Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser with a strong assurance of Britain’s desire for friendship with Egypt.
