Golda Meir Meets with Dulles; Discuss Present Middle East Situation

Israel Foreign Minister Golda Meir met with Secretary of State John Foster Dulles for 40 minutes today and later described the conference as “a very pleasant call” and “an interesting discussion of the situation in the Middle East.”

Israeli sources later revealed that the conversation between Mrs. Meir and Secretary Dulles confirmed the existence of general harmony of thinking of the two governments on the position in the Middle East and on Israel’s right to a sense of security.

The conversation dealt with the broader questions of policy and appraisal and will be followed by discussions in the normal channels on more specific questions, they stated. Mr. Meir was accompanied by Ambassador Abba Eban. She said she would remain in New York for another two weeks in connection with the current UN General Assembly.
