  • Description

    Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion met President de Gaulle of France for the first time June 14. The two leaders conferred at the presidential Elysee Palace then strolled in the Elysee Gardens.

    Speculation was rife that the Prime Minister and Argentine's President Arturo Frondizi - also beginning an official visit to Europe - might meet to discuss the case of Adolf Eichmann spirited by Israeli agents from Argentina and facing charges of exterminating six million Jews in World War Two. But officials in Paris denied any planned meeting though both leaders may be in Belgium shortly.

    After the talks at the Elysee Palace it was announced Israel was to buy 40 Mirage III jet interceptor fighter aircraft from France to replace the French Mystere IV fighters Israel used during the Suez campaign.
