The Rumanian agreement, renewed for a year, provides for an equal exchange of $1,500,000 worth of goods between the two countries. Bulgaria and Israel, under the new pact, will exchange $500,000 worth of goods. Iceland will export to Israel fish, fish oil and fish meal, receiving in return textiles and other light-industry products.
