The World

May 19, 1987

Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres met with Soviet Ambassador Yuri V. Dubynin in Washington and told him that Moscow must end its hostility toward Israel if it wants to play a part in Mideast peace negotiations. Israeli sources said the 90-minute meeting in the home of Edgar M. Bronfman, president of the World Jewish Congress, was arranged at Dubynin's request as Peres wound up his three-day visit to the United States. The Soviet Union severed diplomatic relations with Israel at the time of the 1967 Middle East War.
