President Shazar of Israel Leaves by Plane for State Visit to Nepal

President and Mrs. Zalman Shazar, left here by air tonight for a week’s state visit to Nepal. The President is returning the official visit paid to Israel last fall by King Mahendras. Mr. Shazar had been scheduled to make the trip several months ago, but postponed the journey because there was warfare in progress at the time between India and Pakistan, whose air space the Israeli plane must pass to reach the Nepalese capital of Katmandu. The visit is expected to broaden further the friendly relations between Israel and Nepal.
