A charter flight group of 76 refugees is shown
coming off the plane at Idlewild through the
migration aid of United Hias Service. The ar-

Mrs. Golda Meir Talks of Disarmament on Visit to Canada

OTTAWA, (JTA)—Mrs. Golda
Meir, the Foreign Minister of
Israel, received two enthusiastic
rounds of desk-thumping ap-
plause from members of parlia-
ment when she visited the House
of Commons here this weekend.
Flanked by members of her
staff and the Israel Embassy,
Mrs. Meir sat in the Speaker's
Gallery during the first part of
the daily question period. Speak-
er Marcel Lambert welcomed her
on behalf of members of all
parties. At mention of her name,
members pounded their desks

Addressing a press conference,
the Israel Foreign Minister said
she was convinced the day would
come when it would be possible
to withdraw the United Nations
Emergency Force from the Israel-
Egyptian border. The question
is one of special interest here
since about 1,000 Canadians are

hazard an opinion on how soon
this withdrawal would be possi-
ble and said she had not seen
any signs on the part of the
United Arab Republic that it was
prepared for an arrangement
that would make this withdrawal
possible. She said that the pres-

had resulted in "quite a radical
change in the border situation"
from what it had previously been.
She stressed that Israel was "pre-


pared and anxious to go into
peace negotiations with all our
neighbors at any time and at any
Mrs. Meir also revealed that
in her talks with Prime Minister
Diefenbaker and Foreign Secre-

such international issues as dis-
"Israel is ready to agree to
complete disarmament if her
Arab neighbors will do likewise
but with mutual controls, nat-
urally," Mrs. Meir told a dinner-
meeting in Montreal.

She said arms, tanks and sub-
marines were being sent to Egypt
and that this build-up was dan-
gerous to the security of Israel.
Disarmament was especially im-
portant for Middle East coun-
