Soviet Press and Radio Denounce Israel, Germany on Arms Transaction

Soviet newspapers and radio broadcasts today denounced Israel and West Germany in connection with the arms deal between these two countries and called the deal “a despicable pact between the Israeli men on the top and the West German revenge seekers.”

The Moscow radio also accused the United States with “pushing forward German firms to cover the sending of German raw materials to Israel so that Israel can destroy her Arab neighbors.”

The Soviet Army newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda said that “close links between the Israel Government and the West German ruling circles have long since ceased to be secret.” It claimed that Germany’s reparation payments to Israel are “just another form of Western military aid to Israel.”
