Moscow Sends New Warning to Israel; Demands Compensation for Egypt

A strongly worded warning was addressed to Israel Premier David Ben Gurion today by Soviet Premier Nikolai Bulganin, the Moscow radio reported.

Premier Bulganin warned of a danger that Israel’s action against Egypt would ultimately threaten the existence of the Jewish State. He said Egypt was entitled to compensation for Israel’s Sinai action and that Israel troops must be immediately withdrawn.

(In Jerusalem, the Israel Cabinet met in extraordinary session today to hear Premier Ben Gurion report on political and security developments. The Cabinet approved emergency regulations enabling the government to increase the work day and eliminate the weekly day of rest for workers during the present emergency.)
