Hanan Cidor, of Israel’s Foreign Ministry, has arrived here to confer with officials of the Intergovernmental Committee for European Migration on a new agreement to aid immigration to Israel of Jewish refugees still living in Europe.

The ICEM expects to assist in the movement of approximately 1,500 Jews to Israel in 1955. A total of 4,159 Jews were moved to Israel with ICEM help between February 1952 and the end of 1954.
