British Envoy Urges Negotiated Arab-israel Peace Settlement

Download PDF for this date

British Ambassador-Harold Caccia today called for a negotiated peace settlement between Israel and Egypt which both sides could accept because it would give them justice. He said one could not have a true compromise in which both sides were fully satisfied. He thought neither side would be fully satisfied, but that such a settlement as he envisaged would be for their own good. He spoke at the National Press Club here.

A charge was made by Mr. Caccia that Egyptian President Nasser has-put himself into the position of being “a tool of Russia.” He said Russia had supplied President Nasser with arms “at a time when President Nasser was openly proclaiming his policy for the ultimate destruction of the State of Israel and his ambition to establish an empire stretching from the Atlantic to the Persian Gulf.”
