Download PDF for this date

The U.S. is giving “speedy and sympathetic attention” to Israel’s request for additional defense and economic aid, Yitzhak Rabin, Israel’s Ambassador to the United States, said in a telephone interview en Israeli radio. He also said there was no connection between last week’s Mideast policy statement made by Secretary Rogers and the aid requests made by Premier Golda Meir during her visit to Washington last September. He said White House and State Department officials told him that a deadline for the U.S. reply on the requests was near.
