Outcome of Harriman Talks Vague but 'Useful'
(Continued from Page 1)
course of the talks, Premier Levi
Eshkol reiterated that Israel could
not give up freedom of action in
matters where its most vital in-
terests were involved.
The talks reportedly ranged
over a wide field, and they in-
cluded the possibility of a "global
agreement" on a policy line. The
talks were considered to represent
the most comprehensive exchange
of views between Israel and the
United States ever held. Israeli
officials were not ready to go be-
yond "guarded optimism" about
the talks. However, they said, the
t alks had made the Israeli posi-
---vtion clear, including Israel's in-
sistence on unambiguous agree-
ments to avoid future disagree.
ments and possible pitfalls.
The American postponed his
departure three times. Original,
ly, he was scheduled to leave
Friday, then he decided he
would go Sunday. However,
after touring the Jordan River
valley and the Huleh region in
the north, he met again with
Eshkol and Foreign Minister
Golda Meir in the Premier's
Tel Aviv office, and then later
announced that he would not
leave until Monday.
Present at the discussions, at
one time or another, were also
Deputy Defense Minister Shimon
.Peres and Brig. Yitzhak Rabin,
chief of staff of Israel's defense
The reason given for the latest
postponement of Harriman's de-
parture was that both sides wished
to issue the joint communique.
The possibility was seen here
that Mrs. Meir would go to Wash-
ington soon. Her trip, it is be-
lieved, will include also a visit to
Paris to see France's Foreign Min-
ister Maurice Couve de Murville
and also, possibl y, President
Charles de Gaulle.
Harriman's visit to Israel was
touched off by the action of the
West German government, three
weeks ago, of announcing it was
halting arms deliveries to Israel
under the pressure of Egyptian
President Gamal Abdel Nasser.
A foreign ministry spokesman
laid here that Israel has taken no
initiative in regard to discussing
the Bonn-Jerusalem crisis with the
West German government, beyond
the statement on that issue made
by Eshkol in the Knesset, Israel's
parliament. In that statement, he
