Israeli Journalists off to Moscow

Nine Israeli journalists left Tuesday for a week-long visit to the Soviet Union, at the invitation of the Moscow Journalists Union.

The Israelis, all political correspondents, are members of the Israel Journalists Association. They will visit Moscow, Leningrad and Kiev.

They are scheduled to meet with Soviet officials and members of the local Jewish communities. Their trip was arranged by the Moscow correspondent of the Israeli Communist Party newspaper.

Soviet journalists have accepted an Israeli invitation for a reciprocal visit, which will probably take place at the end of the year.
