'Peace Not Essential for Survival
of Israel,' Says Foreign Minister

JERUSALEM (JTA) — In his
first major policy speech as for-
eign minister, Abba Eban told
Parliament March 23 that peace
was desired by Israel and was de-
sirable to all peoples, "but it is
not an essential condition for our
survival."

Outlining Israel's foreign policy
on the occasion of the presentation
of his ministry's budget, Eban de-
livered a 75-minute address cover-
rtg every aspect of Israel's rela-
ns with the world.

---

Summarizing I s r a e l's policies
and actions during the past year,
the foreign minister did not men-
tion South Vietnam's efforts to
establish diplomatic relations with
Israel. He mentioned the area only
in terms of an expression of anx-
iety and regrets for the bloodshed

there.

In the initial debate after his
address, former Premier David
Ben-Gurion denounced Eban for
his comments about Ben-Gurion
in an interview with a Paris
newspaper. The interview was
on the subject of an opposition
effort to topple Premier Levi
Eshkol's government on a non-
confidence motion, which failed.
Ben - Gurion took exception to
Eban's characterization of Ben-
Gurion's followers as favoring an
"extreme line" in defense matters.
The former premier said this could
only be interpreted as a criticism
of the governments which he
headed.

In those cabinets, he declared,
not one of the Mapai ministers had
opposed reprisal raids against Jor-
dan, Egypt and Syria, or the Sinai
campaign in 1956.
Eban, who served as education
minister in one of those cabinets,
declared during Parliament's de-
bate on the nonconfidence motion
that his comments referred only
to positions taken' by •Ben-Gurion
and other Rafi members after their
break with Eshkol.
(Addressing a nationwide tele-
vision audience in Britain Sunday
night, Ben-Gurion declined to
commem on political developments
in Israel, explaining that "we are
still in the middle of our work."
He was on a brief visit to Eng-
land. (See Page 10.)
In his policy address, Eban
reiterated Israel's stand for the
status quo in Eastern Europe, a
reference to the German refusal
to accept as final the Oder-
Neisse line under which much
of East Prussia was ceded to
Poland after World War IL
He stressed that Israel must
maintain its deterrent capability.
However, he also emphasized that
explanations of the reason for that
need must be a major goal of for-
eign policy, and that Israel must
also listen to every Arab "stirring"
in the direction of accepting Is-
- existence.
_lire said that, in recent months,
;rael had given further study to
le possibilities of closer relations
with the Soviet Union in the light
of the Soviet initiative by seeking
settlement of territorial disputes
on a peaceful basis. He referred

specifically to the Soviet initiative
in arranging for a meeting in So-
viet Tashkent between India and
Pakistan, at which a truce was
reached in the fighting over Kash-
mir.

Ben-Gurion, in his statement, de-
clared that Israel's statement of
willingness to extend the hand of
peace to its Arab neighbors was
established before Tashkent. He
asserted that he himself, as pre-
mier, gave the declaration its final
form. He also said Israel must not
give up the hope of coming to
terms with Communist China.
