Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion has assured the Dalai Lama of Tibet that Israel would support a proposal that the United Nations discuss Tibet’s complaint against Communist China, it was reported here today.

Mr. Ben-Gurion, replying to a request for such support from the Dalai Lama, now in exile in India, assured the Tibetan leader that Israel would also support any UN resolution which, in “reasonable terms,” would assure Tibet’s right to independence.
