Eban and Hammarskjold Discuss Mt. Scopus; Review Other Issues

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.
