Norway to Cooperate with Israel on Use of Atomic Energy for Peaceful Purposes

Israel hopes to acquire an atomic power plant by 1965 through close cooperation with Norway, Prof. Ernst Bergman, chairman of the Israel Atomic Energy Commission, said today. He made the statement in summing up the results of a visit here by a team of world-famous Norwegian atomic scientists who discussed the peaceful uses of atomic energy.

He said one of the principal conclusions of the discussion was that close international cooperation in the field of atomic energy was the small nations’ solution because none of them individually can carry out the tremendously expensive research conducted by the major powers.
