  • Description

    Israeli Foreign Minister Mr. Abba Eban flew back from his mission to the Western capitals last night. He told reporters that he had new considerations to put before Prime Minister Levi Eshkol which were to be discussed at a Cabinet meeting this afternoon (Sunday).

    Mr. Eban has held talks with both President De Gaulle of France and British Prime Minister Harold Wilson. The Foreign Minster also had an 85-minute meeting with President Johnson in Washington, in which he sought support to keep open the narrow straits of Tiran and the Gulf of Aqaba, vital entry to Israel's port of Eilat, now blocked by Egypt.

    Israel has made it clear that without international moves to keep the Gulf open to Israeli ships it will be obliged to act on its own.

    Speaking at the airport, Mr. Eban was not forthcoming as to the details of his report:
