Israelis, Arabs Engage in Dialogue in Unit Formed by World Labor Group

An Israeli-Arab committee has been established within the framework of the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions during its sessions at Brussels which concluded yesterday. The five-member committee will be composed of two Israelis, the secretary of the Tunisian branch of the confederation, the vice-president of the confederation in Lebanon, and the chairman of the international organization.

Z. Hering, head of the foreign relations department of Histadrut, the Israel labor federation, who was one of the two Israeli representatives at the Brussels parley, reported to Histadrut today that Arab-Israeli dialogues, commenced at Brussels, would continue in several meetings prior to the plenary session of the Confederation next February. The Confederation’s executive committee earlier this week called for bilateral negotiations between Israel and the Arab states to settle the Middle East conflict.
