Download PDF for this date

Israel “will not lag behind any other country in the world,” if Soviet Prime Minister Nikita S. Khrushchev’s general disarmament plan is “accepted and implemented faithfully,” Prime Minister David Ben Gurion declared here today.

Mr. Ben Gurion made that statement in answer to press inquiries, adding: “Mr. Khrushchev’s proposal is actually the plan proposed many years ago by the Prophet Isaiah. However, if efficient control is assured, the Khrushchev plan should be accepted. All nations must participate in controlling disarmament.”
