Golda Meir to Head Israel’s Delegation to U.N. Assembly

Download PDF for this date

Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel’s Foreign Minister, will arrive here shortly before the next General Assembly convenes, on September 15, and will remain as head of Israel’s Assembly delegation for several weeks at least, it was learned here today.

It appeared likely today that this year’s Israeli delegation will be smaller than usual. In recent years, Israel has included in its Assembly delegation at least one member of Parliament from the various political parties–excluding only the right-wing Herut and the Communist Party. This year, it is believed, no members of Parliament will be sent, since each party will want its parliamentary leaders to stay home to participate in the campaign prior to the November general elections.
