Nasser Mission Goes to African Lands to Act Against Israel

A 30-man United Arab Republic mission will leave Monday for an extensive tour of new African nations with the primary objective of countering Israel commercial activities in Africa, it was reported here today.

The delegation, which is headed by Mahmoud Hamza, director of the commercial representation department of the UAR Ministry of Economy, will seek to “freeze” Israel and all of the western countries out of the African continent, it was indicated. While the delegations mission is ostensibly economic, its goals are both economic and political. The carefully chosen delegation is made up of highly qualified men.
