President Juan Peron yesterday received Israel Minister Yaacov Tsur prior to Mr. Tsur’s departure for his new post in Paris. Mr. Tsur is scheduled to sail from Argentina this Friday.

During the audience, President Peron stressed the excellent relations between Israel and Argentina, spoke highly of the Argentina Jewish community and expressed his admiration for the loyalty of the Jews to their traditions. He asserted this loyalty was Israel’s strongest guarantee of its future.

Last night, Argentine Foreign Minister Dr. Jeronimo Remorino gave a farewell dinner for Minister Tsur and members of the diplomatic corps were among the guests. During the past week, Mr. Tsur has been honored at luncheons, dinners and receptions by the envoys of France, Greece, Norway and Uruguay.
