Israel Supports
Move to Supervise
Atomic Reactors

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

TEL AVIV—Israel supported
a resolution adopted at the re-
cent Vienna meeting of the
International Atomic Energy
Commission for control by the
Commission of nuclear reactors
of up to 120 megawatts, pro-
vided the reactor was con-
structed with Commission aid,
the chief Israeli delegate re-
ported Tuesday.
Dr. A. D. Bergmann also re-
ported that the Israeli vote is
not indicated because the vote
was taken on Yom Kippur when
the Israeli delegation was ab-
sent. However, Israel has ap-
proved the resolution. Under
that resolution, Israel's 24 mega-
watt reactor at Dimon would
not come under the Commis-
sion's control since it was built
without Commission aid.
It was learned also that a
scientific delegation from Egypt
was limited during a visit to
France to visits of French
nuclear installations function-
ing only for peaceful purposes.
The delegation was not per-
mitted to see any military
nuclear installations. The Egyp-
tians came to France to survey
the possibility of building a
nuclear power station in Egypt,
the only Middle East country
taking steps toward building
such a station. Israel now has a
commission surveying the possi-
bilities of a nuclear power
station, but it has not yet re-
ported any conclusions.
