Turkish Premier Reported Asking
Arab States to Recognize Israel

LONDON, ( J T A ) — Turkish
Premier Adnan Menderes, who
negotiated the projected defen-
sive alliance between Turkey
and Iraq, is asking the Arab
governments to recognize Israel .
as an established state, the Bei-
rut radio reported, quoting the
Lebanese newspaper Al Nahar.
The report quotes Premier
Menderes as stating that "Arab
eriticish of Turkey for its cor-
dial relations with Israel is un-
justified, because Turkey strives
to secure its interests regardless
of where its sympathies may
The Cairo radio, expressing
Egypt's opposition to the Turk-
ish-Iraqi pact, said that Turkey
was not fit to be an Arab ally
because of her trade links with
Israel. The broadcast contained
bitter attacks against both
Turkey and Israel and warned,
the Arab world against endors-
ing the projected Turkish -
lraqui agreement.

the Ankara newspaper "Halkci"
says in an editorial expressing
sentiments prevailing in influ-
ential circles in Turkey. A simi-
lar article, written by Nihat
Erim, leader of the opposition
Republican Party, appeared a
few days ago in the same paper.
Several other Turkish news-
papers, however, carry attacks
on American Jewry and Israel
alleging that they oppose Turk-
ish industrialization in order to
leave the industrial leadership
of the Middle East to Israel. In
this campaign, publications of
both political parties were in-
volved, including the semi-offi:
cial "Zafer" and the Republican
magazine "Akis."
