  • Description

    A NEWLY COMPLETED BAILEY BRIDGE CONNECTING ISRAEL AND JORDAN HAS NOW REPLACED THE ALLENBY BRIDGE SEVERELY DAMAGED DURING THE MIDDLE EAST WAR.

    TROOPS GUARD EITHER END OF THE NEW BRIDGE AD THERE ARE ALSO CUSTOMS POSTS. BUT LORRIES PLY REGULARLY BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES, CARRYING VEGETABLES, OLIVE OIL OR DATES INTO JORDAN AND RETURNING WITH CARGOES OF SEED POTATOES.

    THE CONSIGNMENTS ARE CAREFULLY SCRUTINISED, AND THE DRIVERS' PAPERS ARE CHECKED ON THE BRIDGE. TRUCKS COMING INTO ISRAEL THEN HAVE A FURTHER INSPECTION AT A CUSTOMS POST. NUMBER PLATES ARE ALSO CHANGED AT THE BRIDGE.

    WHILE LIFE APPEARED ALMOST AS NORMAL AT THE RIVER JORDAN BRIDGE, THE TASK OF FINDING A SETTLEMENT IN THE MIDDLE EAST CONTINUED AT THE UNITED NATIONS.

    ISRAELI FOREIGN MINISTER ABBA EBAN TOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE THERE TODAY (WEDNESDAY) THAT HIS GOVERNMENT WAS ONLY INTERESTED IN DIRECT NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE ARAB STATES AS A WAY TO LASTING PEACE.
