Eban Confers with Secretary Dulles; Holds Talks with Hammarskjold

Israel Ambassador Abba Eban today called at the State Department to confer with Secretary of State John Foster Dulles before departing this week-end for Jerusalem for consultations. Mr. Eban will remain in Israel until shortly before the opening of the United Nations General Assembly next month.

Last night, Ambassador Eban conferred at the United Nations headquarters with UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold. He will hold his final talks with Mr. Hammarskjold at the end of the week prior to his departure for Jerusalem. The talks are ranging over the entire Middle East situation as it affects Israel. They are intended to provide the Israeli envoy with Mr. Hammarskjold’s views for relay to Israel’s Premier David Ben Gurion.
