old principle of non-interference

IT JEWISH NEWS -- Friday, October 6, 1961

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y., (JTA)--The chances for
the Tunisian delegate, Mongi Slim, president of the cur-
rent session of the United Nations General Assembly,
to succeed the late Dag Hammarskjold as UN Secretary
General today continued to become weaker because of
his snubbing Israel's Foreign Minister Mrs. Golda Meir
at President Kennedy's reception last week.
More and more delegates from various countries
disqualified Slim from the neutral position which the
executive head of the United Nations must maintain.
The consensus among most of the delegations was that
the representative of Tunisia was out of the running
for Hammarskjold's post.
Mrs. Meir today continued her contacts with other
foreign ministers attending the current session. She met
with Ato K. Yifrum, acting Foreign Minister of Ethiopia.
Over the weekend, she conferred with the Foreign Min-
ister of Iran, Yadollah Azodi.
