Israel Cabinet Sharply Criticizes U.S. – British Resolution

Download PDF for this date

The Israel Cabinet voiced sharp criticism at a meeting today of the draft resolution on the latest Israel-Syrian fighting now before the United Nations Security Council.

The Cabinet formulated directives to the Israel United Nations delegation in which this criticism will be expressed by Israel Chief Delegate Michael S. Comay tomorrow when the draft resolution is scheduled to come up for a vote.

The Cabinet, which heard a report on the Security Council situation from Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel’s Foreign Minister, also took a grave view of the replies by Maj. Gen. Carl D. von Horn, United Nations Truce Supervision Organization head, to questions put to him by Security Council delegates.

Criticism also was expressed of the content of some of the speeches made last week in debate before the Security Council on responsibility for the clashes on the eastern shore of Lake Tiberias and this too was expected to be expressed in the statement tomorrow by Mr. Comay.
