Download PDF for this date

The ban on Jewish emigration from Morocco to Israel was discussed today at a meeting of the Israel Cabinet following a report on the problem by Mrs. Golda Myerson, Israel’s new Foreign Minister.

Ambassador Abba Eban, who was summoned by the Government from Washington for consultations following the resignation of Moshe Sharett as Foreign Minister, reported at today’s Cabinet meeting on American-Israeli relations. During the week-end he held consultations with Premier David Ben Gurion and Mrs. Myerson. On Tuesday he will participate in a meeting of Parliament’s Committee on Security and Foreign Affairs.

During the week-end, Mrs. Myerson received the American and Soviet Ambassadors in separate hour-long conversations. Earlier, she received the British and the French Ambassadors. The meetings were described by a spokesman of the Foreign Ministry not as mere courtesy visits, but as thorough briefings on Israel’s foreign policy as affected by Mrs. Myerson’s assumption of the post of Foreign Minister.
