Israel Foreign Minister Meets with Senate Foreign Relations Committee

Israel development programs were described to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today by Israel Foreign Minister Golda Meir. Mrs. Meir was guest at a luncheon tendered by Chairman J.W. Fulbright, Arkansas Democrat.

Senator Fulbright said later that a “friendly, informal atmosphere prevailed.” He said that Arab-Israel relations were covered in broad context. The Eichmann case was not discussed, he said. A short question-and-answer period followed the luncheon.

Mrs. Meir later met with the staff of the Israel Embassy here and a group of potential investors in Israel undertakings. Prior to his departure tonight for New York, she had nothing to say beyond the customary pleasantries about the luncheon today.
