Knesset Delegation to Fight Soviet-arab Move in Inter-parliamentary Union

An enlarged six-man delegation will go to Geneva to represent the Israel Parliament at the meeting of the council of the Inter-Parliamentary Union opening in Geneva next Tuesday. The delegation will face a fight to prevent adoption of a Soviet-Arab resolution condemning Israel as an aggressor in the June war.

The I.P.U. is not an official body and its decisions are in no way binding, but Israel will seek to prevent adoption by the parliamentarians of the condemnatory resolution. Instead, it will ask the council to send fact-finding missions to all the countries involved in the June hostilities and to exert its influence to secure conclusion of a stable and lasting peace.
