WASHINGTON (Jul. 28)
Meir Rosenne, Israel’s Ambassador to the United States, is expected to be released from the hospital Tuesday after undergoing single bypass heart surgery last week. The 55-year-old Ambassador is “feeling very good,” Israel Embassy spokesman Yosef Gal said Monday. According to Gal, Rosenne underwent surgery at Georgetown University Hospital July 22.
Vice President George Bush, who is presently in Israel, visited Rosenne Friday. He reportedly brought with him President Reagan’s wishes to Rosenne for a speedy recovery.
The Ambassador’s surgery was kept “a secret” in order not to cause undue worry to his daughter in Israel.
