Soviets, Israelis renew ties LATE NEWS

October 18, 1991

JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israel and the Soviet Union restored diplomatic relations today after a 24-year rupture.

The announcement to renew diplomatic ties -- severed after Israel seized land from Moscow's Arab allies during the 1967 Middle East War -- came in a joint statement by Foreign Ministers David Levy of Israel and Boris Pankin of the Soviet Union.

Levy linked the achievement to efforts by U.S. Secretary of State James A. Baker III to convene Middle East peace talks.
