Dr. Weizmann Received by Prime Minister Macdonald in Geneva

Download PDF for this date

Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the World Zionist Organization, was received here Thursday by Prime Minister MacDonald. It was understood that a long discussion on the Palestine situation took place and that the Zionist leader found the result satisfactory.

Dr. Weizmann was to be received on Friday by Aristede Briand, Prime Minister of France.

It is expected here that the Council of the League of Nations at its session today will consider the report of the Permanent Mandates Commission on Palestine and that Arthur Henderson, British Foreign Secretary, will make a statement on the Palestine events.

In League of Nations circles here dissatisfaction was expressed with the statement of Prime Minister MacDonald concerning the Palestine situation in his address before the League Assembly. It was held that MacDonald’s statement that there was no question of racial conflict between Jews and Arabs, was rather confusing and evading the issue.

Nine petitions concerning the Palestine situation were filed with the Secretariat of the League of Nations since the beginning of the Palestine outbreaks.
