The Israeli Prime Minister, Mrs. Golda Meir, arrived in Washington, USA, on Monday (26 February) for a visit including meetings with President Nixon and Defence Secretary, Elliot Richardson.
She arrived in the wake of the controversy surrounding the shooting down last week of a Libyan passenger aircraft by Israeli fighters, causing the death of one hundred and six people.
Soon after her arrival in Washington, Mrs. Meir told newsmen that the people of the Middle East should be making plans on "how to live together". Arabs and Israelis would continue to live together in the Middle East and the sooner that was accepted and there were serious plans to live together, the better it would be.
