Israel Deputy Defense Minister Arrives in Paris for Important Talks

Shimon Peres, Israel’s Deputy Defense Minister, was in Paris today for talks with French Defense Minister Pierre Messmer and Scientific Development Minister Gaston Palwsky. He has meanwhile visited French military installations and French defense industries. He was accompanied by Adm. Mordechai Limon, head of Israel Defense Ministry representation in Europe. He is scheduled to return to Israel Friday.

Meanwhile it was reported here today that Henri Rocherau, a member of the European Economic Community Commission, will fly to Israel tomorrow for a six-day visit. His visit was considered of particular importance because of the recent EEC decision to include Israel among countries where African students may be sent under EEC patronage. The visiting EEC official is in charge of matters of overseas development.
