Yugoslavia Gives “friendly Warning” to Israel on Middle East Crisis

A “friendly warning” against Israel’s involvement in “imperialist ventures” was given Prime Minister David Ben Gurion here yesterday by Yugoslavia’s Minister to Israel, Dragoje Djuric.

Mr. Djuric came to see Mr. Ben Gurion at the latter’s request. The Prime Minister sought an explanation of Yugoslav Marshall Tito’s expressed concern over Israel’s future moves, especially in view of Israel’s permission to Great Britain to fly troops into Jordan over Israel air-space.

It is understood that, after hearing Mr. Ben Gurion’s views and intentions, Mr. Djuric reported to his government in Belgrade that he obtained a “satisfactory impression” in regard to Israel’s position in the current crisis.
