Ben-gurion May Visit Argentina; Settlement of Eichmann Issue Lauded

Israeli Premier David Ben-Gurion may visit the Argentine “within the next few months,” the London Daily Telegraph reported from Buenos Aires yesterday.

The paper said that this gesture of friendship would coincide with the resumption of normal diplomatic relations by the reappointment of an Israeli Ambassador to Argentina. The paper remarked that the joint Israel-Argentine communique of last Wednesday “wiped the slate clean” between those two countries whose relations were severed as a result of the Eichmann affair.

(The Jewish Telegraphic Agency correspondent in Buenos Aires reports that the Argentine press hailed the settlement of the dispute between Argentina and Israel. An exception was La Prensa, one of the leading daily newspapers in the country.)
