Seven Israeli representatives will participate in the World Atomic Disarmament Congress which opens in Moscow tomorrow. Three of them are members of the Mapai, two are members of Israel’s Communist party. one is a Mapam member and the seventh is a member of Achdut Avoda.

Avraham Shlonsky, noted Israeli post, and a leader of the left-wing Mapam Party, was also slated to attend the Congress. But he withdrew from the Israeli group when Moscow refused to grant a visa to his wife, Miriam Shlonsky.
