Kissinger Urges Strategic Understanding

Download PDF for this date

Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger urged the U.S. and Israel last night to use their present warming relations to strive for a deeper strategic understanding. He said it was dangerous for two countries that needed each other to have a “roller-coaster” relationship of ups and downs.

Kissinger spoke at a dinner given in his honor by President Chaim Herzog who said the American diplomat “achieved a place in the history of Israel and the Middle East by paving the way towards the historic developments which have led to peace between Israel and Egypt.”
