Eshkol to Report to Knesset Today on Results of His Visit to France

Prime Minister Levi Eshkol will report tomorrow to the Knesset (Israel’s Parliament) about the results of his 13-day visit to France, after which Parliament will open a political debate which will be devoted not only to the French tour but also to Mr. Eshkol’s June visit to the United States.

Meanwhile, Mr. Eshkol reported to the full Cabinet here on his meetings with French President Charles de Gaulle and other ranking members of the French Government. The Premier is understood to have told the Cabinet that he has found French friendship toward Israel as firm as ever. He reportedly stressed the fact that he has received reassurances of continued French support to Israel.
