Download PDF for this date

Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion today reported to the Cabinet here on the talk which Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel’s Foreign Minister, had last week with President Kennedy at his “Winter White House” in Palm Beach. Florida.

Mrs. Meir is due to arrive here tonight from the United States. Upon her return to Jerusalem, the Cabinet will be convoked for a special meeting to hear from her a first hand account of her conversation with President Kennedy and details of the subjects discussed.

(Mrs. Meir left New York’s International Airport for home last night after spending most of the fall and early winter months at the United Nations, attending the debate on the Arab refugee problem. Her last formal visit in New York was made to pay a farewell call on United Nations Secretary-General U Thant Friday. State Department officials in Washington indicated the possibility that the subject of rockets might have been discussed by Mrs. Meir with President Kennedy.)
