U.S. Starts on Implementation of Desalination Agreement with Israel

The United States Government, working with speed to implement the joint American-Israel survey of nuclear desalination possibilities in Israel, today made known the identities of the three American experts designated as the U.S. representatives.

They are Milton Chase, of the U.S. Department of Interior, an expert on electrical power and Staff Assistant on Water and Power Development; Stewart F. Mulford, Saline Water Conversion Expert, Department of the Interior, and Irving Spiewak, Nuclear Power Expert of the Atomic Energy Commission.

The names of the three Israeli counterparts have not yet been officially announced. It was learned that the U.S. officials are already going “full steam ahead” on plans for the survey authorized by President Johnson.

(Israel’s Deputy Minister of Defense Shimon Peres arrived in Paris today for high level talks with French officials. Mr. Peres came here from New York where he accompanied Premier Eshkol on his recent American tour. He is expected to ask France to participate in the Eilat nuclear desalination project.)
