Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres will come to New York to address the 40th session of the United Nations General Assembly, a high-ranking Israeli diplomat said today. Peres is scheduled to arrive in New York at the beginning of October. The General Assembly session begins on Tuesday, September 17.

Asked if Peres will meet here with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who is also scheduled to address the General Assembly in October, the Israeli diplomat said that “it is likely.” Peres will go to Washington to meet with President Reagan and other Administration officials after his visit to the UN.
