  • Description

    Geneva, June 28: after the Communist walk-out June 27, the disarmament conference met again, but only the 5 Western delegations were present, and the meeting was "adjourned" after only 35 minutes when it was clear the Communists were not coming. An official communique made no mention of resuming the talks.

    Leaders of the Big Three Western delegations were Mr. Eaton (US), Mr. Ormsby-Gore (UK), who made a last-minute appeal to Russia's delegation-leader Zorin to reopen negotiations, and M. Moch (France).

    Soviet Premier Khrushchev said in Moscow Russia walked out of the talks "for the time being" because negotiation had turned into procrastination.

    President Eisenhower said America was still prepared to talk with anyone who showed willingness to negotiate in good faith. UK Premier Macmillan announced he would work for a resumption of the talks.
