Jewish Agency circles here expressed deep satisfaction today with comments about the Agency’s work by Prime Minister Levi Eshkol, who said the Agency is “dealing most satisfactorily with immigrants from the West, with integration and absorption.”

Addressing a press luncheon here, Mr. Eshkol said the Agency “deals individually with these immigrants, and makes all preparations for their absorption prior to their arrival here.” The Premier also stressed that the main relationships with Jewry outside Israel will continue to be via the Jewish Agency, “whose historic mission it is. “
