Israel and Argentina Expected to Exchange New Envoys in October

Israel and Argentina will probably exchange new envoys early in October, Shabtai Rosenne, legal adviser to the Israeli Foreign Ministry, said today.

Mr. Rosenne, who returned to Israel from Buenos Aires, said that all the Argentinean personalities he met –the President, the Foreign Minister and the legal Adviser to the Foreign Ministry– expressed their desire to consider the Eichmann case as closed and hoped for the restoration of friendly relations as soon as possible.

Mr. Rosenne was sent to Argentina to work out an agreement with that government in Buenos Aires after diplomatic relations between Israel and Argentina were severed as a result of the capture of Eichmann.
