Euromart Body Instructed to Start Exploratory Talks with Israel

Download PDF for this date

The Council of Ministers of the European Economic Community, the policy-making body for the European Common Market, decided this evening to instruct an EEC commission to begin exploratory talks with Israel.

The Hallstein commission was instructed to report back to the Council on outstanding problems faced by Israel in relation to the EEC. Israel has applied for either an associate status with the EEC or for a more comprehensive agreement than the present limited one which expires next June 30.

Political sources here attached considerable importance to the Council decision. They said it seemed to prove that there was a will among the six nations of Euromart to further their association with Israel.
