Israeli Foreign Minister David Levy met his German counterpart, Hans-Dietrich Genscher, Thursday to discuss the postwar situation in the Middle East and German aid to Israel.

Levy, who arrived Wednesday night for his first visit to unified Germany, will also hold talks with Chancellor Helmut Kohl and President Richard von Weizsaecker, before traveling to eastern Germany.Bonn sources said they expected Genscher to press Levy to support the U.S. initiative for a Middle East peace conference, althought Israel had earlier rejected a U.S. proposal to give up captured land in exchange for peace.

Levy is likely to seek financial support from Germany, which had given Israel $100 million in military and $200 million in humanitarian aid during the gulf war.
