Gen. Ariel (Arik) Sharon, the Likud leader, will visit the United States shortly under the auspices of the Zionist Organization of America, it was learned here today. The former commander of Israeli forces on the west bank of the Suez Canal who was elected to the Knesset Dec. 31, is expected to meet senior members of the Nixon Administration, members of Congress and leaders of the American Jewish community.

(It was announced in Los Angeles today that Gen. Aharon Yariv will be the guest of honor and principal speaker at a major gifts dinner of the 1974 United Jewish Welfare Fund/Israel Emergency Fund campaign in that city Feb. 11.) Yariv, former chief of intelligence of the Israeli army was the chief negotiator of the six-point cease-fire agreement between Israel and Egypt, signed Nov. 11 at Kilometer 101 on the Suez-Cairo road. He has since been elected to the Knesset on the Labor Alignment list and has retired from active military duty.
