Asutrian Cabinet to Consider Recalling Arms Experts Working in Egypt

The Government of Austria will review the status of Austrian scientists working in arms industries in Egypt following a protest by the Jewish community submitted today to Foreign Minister Bruno Kreisky.

The Austrian Government was asked by the Jewish community to recall the scientists, because they are working on weapons intended for use against Israel. Mr. Kreisky agreed to put the case before the Cabinet when it meets in September, according to a Foreign Ministry announcement.
