Download PDF for this date

A spokesman for the Israel delegation here today commented on the United Nations report showing that Israel, which has held membership on the executive board of the UN Children’s Fund for eight years, is no longer represented on the board.

The spokesman emphasized that Israel had chosen this time not to run for any leading position in UNICEF. The new board, without Israel, will take office January 1, 1960.
