Liberal International Bids All Liberals Support Israel on Direct Talks

Liberal parties and liberal political leaders in all countries were urged today to support Israel’s stand for direct negotiations with the Arabs as the only way to achieve peace in the Middle East. The call was issued by E. H. Toxopeus, of Holland, chairman of the executive of the Liberal International, following an address to that body by Joseph Saphir, Minister without portfolio in Israel’s Cabinet, representing the Israel Liberal Party. Mr. Toxopeus warned that without direct negotiations leading to a settlement, the situation in the Middle East would worsen.
