Israel Minister Denies Speaking to Press on Moscow’s Policy

Download PDF for this date

Israel Foreign Minister Moshe Sharett today denied that he ever gave an interview to the Sunday Times of London on the anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist policy of Moscow. He stressed that beside his statement in the Israel Parliament last week during the debate on the Moscow campaign, he made no other statement on the issue.

The denial was issued in connection with an alleged interview which appeared last Sunday in the Sunday Times in which the Tel Aviv correspondent of the newspaper stated that the Israel Foreign Minister told him that “Moscow’s anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist policy can be taken as a clear indication that the Communist leaders have entered a new stage in preparing their countries for war.”
