Eban Discusses Arab-israel Conflict in ‘foreign Affairs’ Magazine

Israel’s Deputy Prime Minister Abba Eban has called for a “revolutionary” approach to the settlement of the Israel-Arab conflict which would provide the Arab states with a broad range of economic, social and cultural benefits and create a vast “open region” in the Middle East to serve all Mediterranean nations.

In a lengthy article in the July issue of “Foreign Affairs,” the quarterly published by the Council on Foreign Relations here, Mr. Eban stressed that the Arab states had much to gain by a permanent peace settlement with Israel in the fields of communications, tourism, agricultural and industrial development, technical progress and the development of natural resources.
