See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The departure of Finance Minister Yehoshua Rabinowitz to Washington today may mark the end of the reassessment by the United States of its Middle East policy, according to some observers here.

This speculation was enhanced by the fact that Rabinowitz is the first of three Cabinet ministers who will go to Washington this month. Defense Minister Shimon Peres is scheduled to go to the United States to discuss Israel’s arms requests, and Foreign Minister Yigal Allon will be in Washington to evaluate with American leaders the situation developing from the agreement Israel negotiated with Egypt.

Rabinowitz, before leaving Ben Gurion Airport. said he was satisfied with the Israeli-Egyptian accord. He said he would discuss in Washington every facet of Israeli-American economic relations. Rabinowitz will also meet with finance ministers from other countries at the World Bank and International Monetary Fund meetings now being held in Washington.
