Soviet Reports of 'Planned'
Attack on UAR Branded as
False by Turkey and Israel

Bunche May Seek Release of
Confiscated Israel Cargoes
in Talks with UAR in Cairo

Direct JTA Teletype Wire to The Jewish News

JERUSALEM—Dr. Ralph J. Bunche, United Na,
Lions Undersecretary, will discuss with United Arab
Republic officials at Cairo the recent Egyptian seizures
Of cargo vessels attempting to carry Israeli originated
cargoes through the Suez Canal.

Confirmation of the fact that such discussion is on Dr.
Bunches' agenda, on his forthcoming visit to Cairo was received
by government officials here Tuesday from the United Nations
secretariat in New York.
Late in February and early last month, Egypt halted two
foreign ships, one flying the Liberian flag and another owned
by a West German firm, and seized the cargoes carried in those
vessels. The freighters had loaded the cargoes at Haifa and
were bound for Oriental ports. Israel lodged a sharp complaint
against these actions with the UN Security Council, but to date
there has been no announcement about the UAR answer to that
Israeli officials said that during his visit to Cairo Dr.
Bunche will not only talk to Egyptian officials about stopping
the practice of seizing cargoes originating in Israel. Officials
hope also that Dr. Bunche might effect the release of the con-
fiscated cargoes and seek an assurance that Egypt will not again
resort to these practices which Israel has called "piratical."

ISTANBUL Soviet Union propaganda accusations alleging that Israel's Chief
of Defense Forces Staff Gen. Chaim Laskov visited here to plan a joint Turco-Jsraeli
attack against the United Arab Republic was denied Tuesday by the Foreign Ministry.
The canard had been transmitted by. Tass, official USSR news agency, and was
denied as "crude fiction" in a statement in Jerusalem by an Israeli Foreign Ministry
spokesman Monday. Tuesday's Turkish denial specifically mentions publication of
the false report in Red Fleet, organ of the USSR Navy. Red Fleet stated that Gen
Laskov was here last month and had talks with Turkish officials who pledged that
this country would support Israel in an attack against the UAR.
The Foreign Ministry's statement Tuesday declared that the Red Fleet report
was "without foundation, and warned that the false report was issued with the aim
of "deteriorating relations between Turkey and the brotherly Arab countries."

Moscow Reports About 'Planned' Israel Attack Branded False
JERUSALEM, (JTA)—Two reports by Tass, the official Soviet news agelicy,
alleging Israeli plans to attack Arab states, were labeled by a Foreign Ministry
spokesman here as "fantasy" and "crude fiction."
One of the Tass reports, purportedly originating in New Delhi, said that Foreign
Minister Golda Meir has allegedly "agreed with the United States and France on
plans for joint military operations against the United. Arab Republic." The Tass
canard declared that, under the joint plans, the Western bank of the Jordan and the
Sinai Peninsula would be occupied, while Jordan's King Hussein would be compen-
sated by ruling over a Jordanian-Syrian State.
The second "crude fiction" circulated by Tass declared that preparations have
been made at Istanbul for the Turkish and Israeli general staffs to direct joint attacks
against Arabs, primarily against Iraq's ruler, Gen. Kassem. This report was date-
lined Athens.
Observers here noted that, in the past, Moscow spread reports of alleged im-
minent attacks by Israel against Arab states, wheneVer it wanted to frighten the
Arab rulers into tightening their relations with the Soviet Union.

USSR Broadcasts Pledge to Aid 'Nasser Against 'Israeli Peril'
NEW YORK, (JTA)—The American Corrimittee for Liberation, an anti-Com-
munist organization which monitors Soviet broadcasts, reported that the Soviet gov-
