Download PDF for this date

The Baghdad Radio announced today that the American pharmaceutical house of Merck, Sharp and Dohme, of Philadelphia, had been removed from the Arab League blacklist because it had conformed to Arab boycott regulations by severing trade relations with Israel.

The broadcast announced that Revlon, Inc. , an American cosmetics firm, the Weyland Engineering Company, British automotive firm, and four Latin firms, one German concern and three Greek and four Norwegian ships had been blacklisted in Iraq for dealing with Israel.
