  • Description

    In the course of a television interview in Washington on Sunday (July 19) Israel's Ambassador Mr. Yitzhak Rabin discussed his country's ability to deal with a combined assault by the Arab countries and Russia.

    He said he believed that Israel, like any other free democracy in the world, would not be able to withstand a direct Russian attack.

    Mr. Rabin conceded that Soviet aid could lead to Israel's loss of air supremacy over the Canal Zone. Once this happened there would be nothing to stop Egyptian troops crossing the waterway.

    Mr. Rabin refused to be drawn on Israeli reaction to the U.S. peace plan, which involves a 90-day cease-fire, or on the question of the use of nuclear arms in the area.

    But he did repeat Israel's pledge that it would never be the first to introduce nuclear weapons to the Middle East.
