Eisenhower and Nehru Reported Agreed on “new Deal” for Middle East

President Eisenhower and India’s Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru have worked out a “New Deal” for the Middle East, which Mr. Nehru will lay before Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden here tomorrow, the Sunday Express reports today.

The “New Deal” reportedly involves these three points: 1. A clear statement subscribed to by the United States, Britain and India, clarifying Israel’s status, thus “ending the main cause of friction in the Middle East” 2. International control of the Suez Canal under the United Nations; 3. Sharing of oil revenues so as to improve the standard of living of Arabs, particularly in the poorer Arab states.
