Allon Confirms Asking Lord George Brown to Probe Possibility of Uar-israel Meetings

Deputy Premier Yigal Allon confirmed yesterday that he had asked Lord George Brown, former Foreign Secretary in the British Labor government, to put out feelers to Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser early last year on the chance for top-level Egyptian-Israeli meettings. Allon emphasized that he had not asked Lord George Brown to make similar contact with Jordan’s King Hussein. The Israeli official made these disclosures in the course of comments keyed to the publication in London next Monday of Lord George Brown’s political memoirs.
