Israeli Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir arrived here this morning and will remain in New York until Thursday when he goes to Washington. An Israeli spokesman said that in addition to scheduled meetings with Secretary of State Alexander Haig, members of the Senate and the House, and Defense Secretary Casper Weinberger, Shamir will “probably” pay a courtesy call on President Reagan.

While in New York, Shamir will hold consultations with Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S., Ephraim Evron, and with Yehuda Blum, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations. No other meetings are scheduled here before he leaves for Washington.

Shamir will return to New York next Sunday and will meet on Monday with the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. He will also make several appearances on local television programs, the spokesman said but did not indicate which they were. The Foreign Minister will conclude his U.S. visit Tuesday morning when he departs for visits to Mexico and Colombia.
