New Argentine Foreign Minister is Staunch Supporter of Israel

Dr. Alejandro Ceballos, the man appointed Foreign Minister of Argentina, is a staunch friend of Israel who sided with the Jews in their worldwide campaign for a Jewish State as early as the World War II years.

Dr. Ceballos yesterday received Israel Ambassador Dr. Arieh L. Kubovi in an audience during which they exchanged views on current Middle East developments. The Foreign Minister was a prominent member of the Argentine Palestine Committee which was formed during the 1940’s and sparked a political campaign in the country in behalf of Israel before and after its independence was declared.
