Israel Top Envoys from Various Countries Summoned for Consultations

Israel’s top envoys from various parts of the world have been summoned home for consultations but Foreign Ministry officials said the simultaneous arrivals were only a coincidence and not part of any special conference.

Observers said the arrivals presumably were connected with forthcoming changes of heads of several major Israel Embassies. Arye Harel, envoy to Soviet Russia, and Gideon Raphael, Israel envoy in Brussels are already here. Ehud Avriel, the envoy to Ghana and Arye Levavi, the ambassador to Argentina, were due later this week.
