Phillips Talbot, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern and African Affairs, conferred today with Premier Levi Eshkol and Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel’s Foreign Minister.

No details were given on the talks, but it was assumed that Arab threats to divert Jordan River headwaters to deny the water to Israel was among the principal topics of the talks.

It was also assumed that there was an exchange of views based on the American diplomat’s talks with President Nssser of Egypt and other leaders he met on his current tour of Arab capitals. He is leaving Israel on Saturday.
