Foreign Minister Yigal Allon left for New York today to head the Israeli delegation at the United Nations General Assembly with a warning that Arab extremists would continue their attempts to have Israel ousted from the world organization. Allon said the extremists’ motive was to try to sabotage peace moves in the Middle East, but noted that more and more countries have stated their position against suspending Israel from the General Assembly.

Allon is scheduled to meet Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger in Washington Wednesday. Asked about a statement attributed to Kissinger that Israel would consider a three kilometer pullback on the Golan Heights as part of a new disengagement agreement with Syria, the Foreign Minister repeated yesterday’s denial by Premier Yitzhak Rabin that Israel had ever made such a pledge to Kissinger. Allon told reporters that no meeting has been arranged for him with Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko. He added that there are no chance meetings with the Russians–they are always pre-arranged.
