Israeli Officials Deny Report That Levy Met Hussein in Paris

Government officials flatly denied today an Israel Radio report that Deputy Premier David Levy met with King Hussein of Jordan in Paris. Knowledgeable sources here dismissed the report as highly unlikely.

The report originated with the State-owned radio’s Paris correspondent after Levy, who was in the French capital for a meeting with President Francois Mitterrand last week, abruptly cancelled plans to return to Israel yesterday to attend the weekly Cabinet meeting. He also cancelled, on short notice, an interview on Radio Monte Carlo. The latter said it was told that Levy had been called to an important political meeting. Levy gave no reason for his change of plans.
