Poland Refuses Visas to Jewish Journalists on Eban’s Visit to Warsaw

The Polish Embassy in Paris refused today to provide visas for Israeli journalists, including a Jewish Telegraphic Agency correspondent, who had planned to go from here to Poland to cover the visit there of Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban.

The Embassy, which had accepted the requests for the visas, expressed apologies for being unable to provide the visas for lack of “a positive answer” from officials in Warsaw. Israeli officials in Paris were trying to determine why the Polish Government had rejected the right of journalists to enter Poland for strictly professional work.
