U.S. Officials Have “understanding” for Israel, Golda Meir Reports

Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel’s Foreign Minister, found “understanding for Israel” among officials in the United States Department of State, as well as among other leading Americans.

Mrs. Meir made this statement here upon her return yesterday from a month’s visit to the United States, and a brief stop in France. As far as France is concerned, she said, she found in the present Government in Paris “the same warm and friendly” attitude toward Israel characteristic of the former French Government, and the same “keen desire” for cooperation with Israel.

The Foreign Minister declared that United States Jewry has once more proved its “enthusiasm for Israel and its willingness to help solve any problem with which Israel in faced.”
