Israel Envoys from Washington, Moscow and Paris Due in Jerusalem

Download PDF for this date

Israel’s ambassadors in the capitals of three major world powers–United States, Soviet Union and France–are due in Jerusalem this month for consultations, it was revealed today. Authoritative sources denied, however, that an “ambassadorial conference” is in the offing, asserting that it is coincidental that these three are coming home at the same time.

Ambassador Abba Eban, coming from Washington, is combining his vacation with his annual consultations on the agenda of the forthcoming United Nations General Assembly. Though Mr. Eban’s tour of duty is coming to a close, it is expected he will stay on in the United States until at least the end of the General Assembly, at which he will again head the Israel delegation.

Ambassador Joseph Avidar is returning from Moscow upon completion of his tour of duty in the USSR. Ambassador Joseph Tsur, who is also nearing completion of his present tour will, presumably discuss future plans with the Foreign Ministry. He will fly home as soon as he completes a round of meeting with top French leaders, probably including Premier Charies de Gaulle.
