A delegation of the Canadian-Israel Committee met with the Japanese Ambassador, Akira Nishiyama here Tuesday to express their “deep concern” over the Japanese government’s reinterpretation of Resolution 242 to coincide with the Arab interpretation. “Acceptance of the Arab interpretation is a capitulation which encourages further blackmail,” they told the envoy. He promised to convey their views to his government in Tokyo. The spokesmen for the delegation were Myer Beck, executive director of the CIC; Alan Rose, associate director of the Canadian Jewish Congress and Philip Greenberg, a Montreal businessman.
