Eban and Hammarskjold Discuss Mt. Scopus; Review Other Issues

Download PDF for this date

The Mt. Scopus issue was discussed here today by Israel representative Abba Eban and United Nations Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold in the course of a 70-minute meeting. Mr. Eban was accompanied by his deputy, Mordecai Kidron.

The conversation, the first between the two diplomats in a month, was of a general nature and covered both international and Middle Eastern developments, including the Egyptian seizure of the Israeli fishing trawler Doron and her crew of six, a matter on which Mr. Hammarskjold is still active. They did not discuss the possibility of a Security Council session on Jordan’s complaint against Israel’s afforestation project in no-man’s land adjoining Jerusalem.
