Letter dated 30 November 1954 addressed by the Chairman of the Conciliation Commission
to the Deputy Permanent Representative of Israel to the United Nations
I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of 30 November 1954, transmitting the text of the Israel Government’s announcement of 16 November, in reply to the Commission’s request for clarification made to you at its meeting of 25 November.
In the light of your notification of 30 November, it is now the Commission’s understanding that the announcement of 16 November comprehends the extent of the agreement between Israel and the banks concerned relating to release procedures and the Commission is, accordingly, transmitting the text of the announcement, together with a copy of the present letter, to the representatives of the Arab Governments for their information. The Commission understands that the United Nations Relief and Works Agency and the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization are willing to furnish their cooperation to the same extent as previously, as is the Commission.
Please accept, Sir, the assurances of my highest consideration.
