Israel Opens Talks with European
Nations on Link to Common Market

BRUSSELS, (JTA) — After
preparations lasting more than
a year, Israel and the European
Economic Community opened
formal and intricate negotia-
tions Monday for the establish-
ment of a link between Israel
and the six-nation European
Common Market.
Levi Eshbol, Israel's Minister
of Finance, heading a top-rank-
ing delegation of 25 members,
faced the EEC's Council of
Ministers, t h e organization's
highest body. . In an address
lasting an hour and a half, he
put forth proposals for solving
the economic problems facing
Israel as a result of the Com-
mon Market pact to which
France, Italy, West Germany,
The Netherlands, Belgium and
Luxembourg have adhered. He
also proposed the general lines
along which, in Israel's opinion,
the talks should proceed.
Outlining Israel's historical
and economic tasks, and Is-
rael's close links with West-
ern Europe, Eshkol requested
"speedy" solution of the prob-
lems facing Israel since the
creation of the EEC, in view
of the fact that the EEC coun-
tries form a major part of the
lands to which Israel directs
its exports. He told the Min-
isters Israel would prefer to
see its problems treated on a
"global basis," and not "item
by item."
Jean Rey, the so-called "For-
eign Minister" of the EEC, wel-
comed the Israel delegation to

the meeting at the highest level,
and was host at a luncheon ten-
dered the Israelis after the
morning session. Then the two
sides, in the absence of both
Eshkol and Rey, got down to a
working session at which plans
were mapped for further talks.
It had previously been indi-
cated that, if the proposed Is-
raeli link were to be considered
"item by item,' a total of more
than 100 separate items would
have to be examined. The after-
noon meeting decided to form
several committees which will
look into various phases of the
overall problem. In the absence
of Eshkol, the Israel delegation
will be headed by Amiel Najar,
Israel's Ambassador to both
Belgium and the EEC. Eshkol
retrned to Israel Wednesday.
The strength of Israel's del-
egation, and its all-encompass-
ing character, was indicated •
by a breakdown showing that,
among the members of the
mission who came here with
Eshkol, are ranking experts
from Israel's Ministries of
Finance, Commerce and In-
dustry, Agriculture, and For-
eign Affairs.
Prior to the morning meeting,
Eshkol told a news conference
that Israel would like an asso-
ciation with Euromart similar
to that already granted Greece.
"We would press," he said, "for
an arrangement which would
enable us to sell our products
and services in Western Europe.
We do not exclude any possible
association for reaching an ar-
rangement with the Common
Market."
In reply to questions, Eshkol
declared that Israel will not ask
for financial aid or subsidies
"because, by now, Israel can
rely on private investments to
build its economy." He declined
to discuss the possibility of Is-
rael entering a custom's union
with the EEC.
"Israel," he continued, "is
confronted by a very serious
problem. We must develop a
modern economy, and have
already embarked on large-

scale industrialization. Israel's
population at the end of this
decade will reach 3,000,000,
and such a modern economy is
necessary."
Israel reported in two sepa-
rate commissions on its farming
and industrial programs.
Eighteen EEC . experts and
seven Israeli delegates exam-
ined Israeli farming on the basis
of a report by Abraham Offer,
representing the Israeli Agri-
culture Ministry. His report
stressed the need for Israel to
export such foods as citrus pro-
ducts, eggs and other farm pro-
ducts.

LONDON, (JTA) — The im-
portance of the opening at Brus-
sels of the long-awaited nego.-
tiations between Israel and the
European Economic Community
for a link between Israel and
the European Common Market
was underscored here by the
attention given the Brussels
talks in The Times of London
and the Financial Times.
"Britain's stake in the nego-
tiations," the Times of London
stated, "is reflected in the trade
figures. The United Kingdom
exports to Israel last year were
over 27,000,000 pounds sterling
($75,600,000) and imports were
17,750,000 pounds sterling ($33,-
700,000)." Britain, the news-
paper noted, ranked only be-
hind the United States as an
importer from Israel and only
behind West Germany as a sup-
plier to Israel.
