  • Description

    Israeli Defence Minister Shimon Peres said on Friday the rebuilding of Israel's strength was the main deterrent to further war in the Middle East.

    Speaking to visiting Americans of the fund-raising United Jewish Appeal he said Israel knew another war was possible but that the country was ready to pay whatever price was necessary to keep the peace.

    In answer to questions, Mr. Peres said he believed the American-Soviet detente was working in all parts of the World except the Middle East. He told the American visitors that the stronger Israel was, the less belligerent the Arab nations would become. The more arms the Arabs received from Russia would be followed by a increase in their belligerency while the more arms Israel received from America would be followed by a decrease in the Arab aggressiveness.

    The U.J.A. members are on an eight day tour of Israel to determine the present needs of the country.
