Arab Delegations at U.N. Vote to Snub Mayor Lindsay’s Dinner Dance

Download PDF for this date

Twelve of the 13 Arab nations represented at the United Nations decided yesterday to boycott Mayor John V. Lindsay’s dinner-dance for chiefs of missions attending the 21st General Assembly because the Mayor canceled a city reception and dinner for King Faisal of Saudi Arabia last June.

The social affair, which will be held Monday at the New York State Theater at Lincoln Center, will honor the 118 U.N. members in a bid to create closer friendships between the diplomats and the staff of the U.N. and the city of New York.
