NEW DELHI, (JTA) — Con-
siderable importance was • at-
tached by political sources
here to a 30-minute private talk
between Prime Minister Nehru
and Gideon Rafael, the deputy
director of the Israel Foreign
Ministry.
Rafael is attending a World
Health Organization meeting
here and is the only delegate
to whom the Prime Minister
has granted a private audience
so far. The interview was con-
sidered , significant because of
plans of the Arab League to
open an office in New Delhi.
The Israel Foreign Ministry
had expressed concern about
the plan to the External Af-
fairs Ministry of India.
