Recent press reports claiming that the State Department has sought to check Israel by deferring action on loans to Israel were denied categorically by the Department here this weekend.
A statement issued by the Department declared: “The Department categorically denies that any Israeli requests for aid are being held up for any reason. Several matters are under discussion, but there is no deliberate hold-up.”
