Eec Examines Israeli Exports

The agriculture ministers of the Common Market countries began a two-day meeting in Luxembourg today to study proposed tariff privileges on agricultural exports to be granted Mediterranean area countries including Israel.

A Common Market commission has recommended concessions on citrus fruits, vegetables and wines. Italy and France are expected to oppose any lowering of tariffs on wines. Israel, though a wine exporting country, is not directly affected by the controversy.
