Israeli Labor Party Delegation Confers in Bonn

A 12-man delegation of the Israel Labor Party conferred over the week-end with leaders of West Germany’s ruling Social Democratic Party and is expected to meet with Chancellor Willy Brandt before ending its 10-day visit to this country. Their talks reportedly concern German-Israeli relations, Israel and the Common Market and the Middle East situation.

The visitors attended a reception given today by Mayor Klaus Schuetz of West Berlin. They met yesterday with Senior SDP members including Herbert Wehner, deputy chairman of the party who headed a delegation to Israel in the spring of 1971.

The Israeli group, headed by Labor Party Secretary General Aharon Yadlin, visited the site of the Bergen Belsen concentration camp Friday where Yadlin and Hans Koschnik, president of the Senate and Mayor of Bremen each placed a wreath in memory of the Jewish victims of Nazism.

The Israeli visitors are scheduled to visit Hamburg and Munich before returning home. Their itinerary has not been disclosed for security reasons.
