Download PDF for this date

The Israel Cabinet held an extraordinary, unscheduled session today. The subject under discussion was the government’s position on a number of questions which will be discussed in Paris this week by Foreign Minister Gold Meir and French ministers. Mrs. Meir was due to arrive in Paris today.

(In Paris, a French Government spokesman said today that the latest credit grant of $15,000,000 which France will make to Israel, in addition to the previously granted $30,000,000, will be used basically for the construction of a deep water port at Elath and for the building of a rail line between Elath and Beersheba and then on to Ashdod where a new Mediterranean port and industrial center is to be located.)
