Eban to Confer with United States Officials on Visit to Assist United Jewish Appeal

Foreign Minister Abba Eban will meet with United States Government officials when he goes to the U.S. in a few weeks on behalf of the United Jewish Appeal, it was disclosed today. He will discuss Israel’s requests for economic and military aid which were presented to President Richard M. Nixon by Premier Golda Meir on her recent visit to Washington. Sources here said Mr. Eban would also seek to clarify certain developments in America’s position on the Middle East. Israeli officials were disturbed by reports that the U.S. has moved closer to the Arab-Soviet position on the question of boundaries.
