June 1, 1965
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Israeli officials reported today that three major West German firms, AEG, Telefunken and Siemens, had resumed trade relations with Israel after they renounced the Arab boycott of Israel.

The three were among ten giant foreign companies whose imports were halted by Israel after they yielded to Arab boycott orders. Four more of the firms later rejected the boycott, including Goodyear of the United States, Phillips of Holland, Matsushida and Fujidenki of Japan. Companies still boycotting Israel are Britain’s Pye, West Germany’s Imperial Rundfunk and Japan’s Hitachi.
