USSR reportedly seeks to resume relations with Israel: The USSR has indirectly approached the Israeli legation in Sofia with the view of resuming relations between the USSR and Israellaccording to information acquired y the Turkish Foreign Office. Moscow is said to have set the condition that Israel punish those responsible for bombing the Soviet legation in Tel Aviv and pledge not to join any pact directed against the USSR 2. Comment: The Israeli UN delegate told Ambassador Lodge in mid-April that a member of the Soviet bloc had made overtures to the Israeli delegation that might lead to a renewal of relations. When the Kremlin announced the exoneration of the accused in the "doctors' plot," the Israeli Foreign Ministry Stated that it would "welcome" the resumption of normal relations with the USSR. Israel's dependence on the West would prevent it from agreeing fully to the Moscow condition on alliances. 3.3(h)(2)� - 3 - TSrE IC
