Norway Expresses “anxiety” over Israel’s Entrance into Sinai

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Norway views with “deep concern and anxiety the news of the invasion into Egypt of the armed forces of Israel,” the chairman of the Norwegian delegation here, Hans Engen, declared today in a letter sent to Henry Cabot Lodge, head of the United States delegation.

The Norwegian Government, Mr. Engen stated, in the letter made public by Mr. Lodge, supports the United States initiative “in bringing the situation in Egypt to the Security Council for prompt action and endorses the steps which the United States Government requested the Security Council to take in order to bring the fighting to an end and restore the peace in the area.” The letter expressed also “full support” of the stand on this issue taken by President Eisenhower.
