Inter Parliamentary Union Urged to Help Opposition to Arab Boycott

Dr. Israel Ben-Meir, Israeli Deputy Minister of the Interior, today asked the Interparliamentary Union world conference here to encourage nations to oppose and denounce the Arab boycott. He said the nations of the world should reject the Arab boycott as “an immoral act of pressure.”

Dr. Ben-Meir said it was not improper to expect developing countries to contribute toward their own development in a positive way, rather than concentrate on an aggressive military build-up such as is being pursued by Egypt.
