  • Description

    Lord Home, the British Foreign Secretary, arrived at Le Bourget Airport, early Dec 10, to attend the forthcoming Paris meeting of Allied Foreign Ministers and of the NATO Council.

    He told reporters the meetings were of special importance since they concerned "the policy to be followed over Berlin and the crisis provoked by the Russians in that city". Before leaving London, he advocated an immediate cease-fire in the Congo and a meeting between President Tshombe and Prime Minister Adoula.

    In the afternoon, United States Secretary of State Dean Rusk flew into Paris to be received at Orly Airport by the American Ambassador to France, Mr Gavin, Mr Rusk, who was accompanied by Russian affairs adviser Charles Bohlen, said he looked forward to a week of intense activity which he hoped would be profitable.

    Later, Lord Home and Mr Rusk had after-dinner talks at the American Embassy. In the presence of the American Ambassador in London and a Foreign Office official, they discussed the Congo situation and the attitude of France towards proposed negotiations over Berlin. President de Gaulle, who discussed the matter with West German Chancellor Dr Adenauer on Dec 9, is still opposed to negotiations with Russia on Berlin alone, while Britain and the United States are not prepared to negotiate in the absence of France.

    The British and American Ministers were to meet the French Foreign Minister, M. Couve de Murville, at the Quai d'Orsay the following morning. They were to be joined for luncheon and an afternoon meeting by Dr Schroeder, the new West German Foreign Minister.
