Soviet Govt. Sends Note to Israel; Urges Increased Peace Efforts

A 13-page Soviet note to Israel calling this state’s attention–as a United Nations member–to the increased threat of nuclear war and urging Israel to step up efforts to strengthen world peace, was received at the Foreign Ministry today.

The note, handed to Israel’s Embassy in Moscow Friday, is similar to scores of such missives sent to other UN members. Members of the NATO and Warsaw Pact groups received differently worded notes, it is understood. The Foreign Ministry is studying the note, the text of which was not made public here as yet.
