Israeli Aid to Papua-New Guinea

(Communicated by the Foreign Ministry Spokesman)
January 5, 1998

The serious effects of ‘El-Ninio’ in Papua-New Guinea have resulted in conditions of drought, frost and the destruction of crops.

The Israel Foreign Ministry has offered assistance, and in coordination with the "Zera" company (which contributed part of the aid), will send a shipment of seed valued at $6,000, comprising three different species, as requested by the Papua-New Guinea government.

The shipment will be conveyed to its destination via the Israeli Embassy in Australia.
