Renewal of the cordial ties between Argentina and Israel, which were shaken by the seizure of Nazi mass murder specialist Adolf Eichmann here last spring, was dramatized last night at a dinner given by Argentine Jewry for Dr. Reogelio Tristany, the Argentine Ambassador-designate to Israel.

The dinner was sponsored by the Buenos Aires Kehilla, the DALA, central body of Argentine Jews, and the Argentine Zionist Organization and it was attended by leaders of all local Jewish institutions.

Dr. Marcos, vice-president of the DALA, stressed the links between the Argentine people and Israel and Dr. Mordechai Avida, Charge d’Affaires of the Israel Embassy, emphasized the common ideals and concepts shared by the two countries.

In a cordial reply, Dr. Tristany accepted the honor and pledged his best endeavors in his new mission. His appointment completed the exchange of new ambassadors between the two countries, following Argentina’s suspension of diplomatic relations with Israel over Eichmann’s seizure.
