  • Description

    Leading Socialists from 29 European and Asian countries gathered in Haifa, Israel, for a two-day annual conference of the Socialist International's Council which opened April 27. It was the first of the Council's conference to be held outside Europe.

    Among those welcoming delegates were Israel Premier David Ben Gurion and the Mayor of Haifa.

    Opening a discussion on the Summit meeting, Britain's Hugh Gaitskell, Labour Party leader, called on the Geneva disarmament conference to get down to details as not a single concrete agreement had yet been reached. He also wanted China and India to be co-opted to the Geneva talks, and appealed for a Summit agreement on Berlin and on zones of controlled disarmament in Europe.
