Believed Hiding - in Kuwait
JERUSALEM—The decision . of the . Renault Company to end. operations in
Israel reportedly because of Arab boycott threats brought up top level discussions
in the Israel government Wednesday.
• The French firm, owned.by the French government, has a partnership with the
Kaiser-Fraser operations in Israel, and operates a plant in Haifa where assembly
takes place of imported and locally-made parts of the Renault Dauphine and other
small cars which are exported to Asia and Africa.
Although officially the reason given for the decision to halt operations was
reported as "economic considerations," it was known that the Arab Boycott Com-
mittee had threatened complete boycott of all Renault imports unless operations in
Israel were stopped. •
Israel officials are reported viewing the decision with gravity, particularly
because the company. is state-owned.

Century said opposition to Israel shipping rights was a "dubious rallying point for
Arab unity." Jordan's attitude was singled out for criticism and termed a result of
Jordanian-UAR reconciliation. The Jorda n delegate --was charged with repeating
"dusty slogans" and thus defying UN Secretary-General
Dag Hammarskjold, Secretary of State Christian Herter,
