January 3, 1967
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

United States Senator Stuart Symington of Missouri, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, left here this morning after an 13-hour visit during which he met with Prime Minister Levi Eshkol, Foreign Minister Abba Eban and former Chief of Staff Moshe Dayan, now a member of Ben-Gurion’s Israel Workers faction in the Knesset, Israel’s Parliament.

Sen. Symington arrived here yesterday from Jordan as part of a tour of the Middle East after a visit to Vietnam. His talks with Premier Eshkol and Mr. Eban dealt with the situation in the Middle East and Israel’s views on American proposals to use electronic devices for sealing the border with Jordan. (Israel’s Chief of Staff, Gen. Yitzhak Rabin, commenting on the proposals suggested by the United States for use of electronic devices to curtain off the borders and aid detection of saboteurs, was reported today to have said such devices were not yet sufficiently tested to prove their usefulness.)
