Trade Unions in Europe Back Israel’s Approach to European Common Market

A resolution declaring that Israel has to face “a special economic problem in the future development of the European Economic Community,” and urging the European Common Market countries to help provide some “practical” solutions for that problem, was adopted here today by the third general assembly of trade unions in the six countries forming the EEC. Those countries are France, Italy, West Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg.

The resolution will be forwarded to the governments of the six countries and to the political parties in the parliaments of those countries; Under the declaration, the governments and parliaments will be requested that “everything be done” to start negotiations between the EEC and Israel “as soon as possible.”
