GENEVA, (JTA) — Abba
Eban, Israel's Minister of Edu-
cation, said Israel was ready to
enlarge its program of provid-
ing additional training in va-
rious sciences to young people
of other countries.
He made the announcement
at the United Nations Science
and Technology Conferences
after asserting that every new
nation, "even the smallest,"
must make every possible ef-
fort to assure that, in the next
decade or two, it will have a
community of scientists "able
to take part in the research
work of the whole world."
He rejected the view, ex-
pressed by some speakers at the
conference from Western coun-
tries, that new states should
content themselves with the
simple technology now available
generally, leaving pure research
to the more developed nations.
He argued that scientific
research was an educational
and cultural value indispens-
able to any normal society,
and that there could not be a
technological spirit in a coun-
try which did not encourage
education and scientific re-
search. He also contended
that even new countries could
not content themselves only
with the counsel of foreign
scientists, even if there was
great value in the work being
done by such scientists.
Finally, he said, new coun-
tries strive not only for eco-
nomic development but also for
equality and decency. For these
reasons, he added, new nations
could not afford to remain out-
side the research efforts under-
