Israel to Work on Scientific Projects with African, Latin American Nations

Israel is planning a number of joint scientific projects with African and Latin American nations. This disclosure came from Foreign Minister Abba Eban in his address to the closing session of the International Conference on Urbanization and Development of Underdeveloped Countries held at the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot. These projects include the establishment of a Microbiology Institute in Addis Ababa sponsored jointly by the Ethiopia and Jerusalem Universities and a Biomedical Institute in another African state. In addition, a survey of arid zones will be conducted by Israelis and Latin American countries, while institutions for regional planning and development will be established in Brazil by that country and Israel.
