Download PDF for this date

Chinese Communist Premier Chou En-lai charged here yesterday that Israel has “become an indivisible part of Western imperialism’s aggression, “according to a dispatch received from Cairo which the Premier is visiting.

In a swipe at the United States, Mr. Chou asserted that had it not been for the U.S., “Israel would not have been so dangerous.” The Premier promised his country’s “political, material and cultural support for the Arab peoples, including Egypt.”
