In addition to the Foreign Minister, it will include Attorney General Yitzhak Zamir; Meir Rosenne, the Foreign Ministry’s legal advisor; Eliahu Ben-Elissar; director general of the Prime Minister’s Office; Brig Gen. Ephraim Poran, Begin’s military aide; Ephraim Evron, Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S.; Yehuda Blum, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations; and Dayan’s two political aides, Naftali Lovie and Elyahim Rubinstein. Lavie told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that kosher food will be provided for those members of the delegation who require it.
