Peres at Socialist Meeting

Labor Party chairman Shimon Peres left for Madrid today at the head of the Israeli delegation to the Socialist International Conference opening in the Spanish capital. He told reporters before his departure that the Israeli delegation would support Egypt’s application for admission of its ruling National Democratic Party into the Socialist International as an associate member.

He said his delegation would make a determined effort to forestall any move to grant the Palestine Liberation Organization observer status in Socialist International institutions and would oppose resolutions condemning the Camp David process or attacking Israel for its Jerusalem Law. Chancellor Bruno Kreisky of Austria has prepared a resolution to that effect and another calling for mutual recognition by Israel and the PLO.
