  • Description

    PRESIDENT KENNEDY WENT TO ANDREWS AIRFORCE BASE IN WASHINGTON DC SEPT 12 TO MEET THE TWO DELEGATES FROM THE 'NON-ALIGNED' NATIONS' CONFERENCE IN BELGRADE. THEY ARE DR. SOEKARNO, PRESIDENT OF INDONESIA, AND MODIBO KEITO, PRESIDENT OF MALI.

    AS USUAL, THE US PRESIDENT WENT BY HELICOPTER FROM THE NEARBY WHITE HOUSE. AFTER THE AIRPORT CEREMONIES, INCLUDING SPEECHES AND TROOPING THE LINE OF THE HONOUR GUARD, THE THREE PRESIDENTS USED THE SAME HELICOPTER TO GET THEM BACK TO THE WHITE HOUSE TO BEGIN DISCUSSIONS.

    PRESIDENT KENNEDY TOLD THE VISITORS AT THE AIRPORT THAT HE REALISED THEY CAME ON BEHALF OF WORLD PEACE. PRESIDENT SOEKARNO HOPED THE MISSION WOLD HELP SAVE THE WORLD FROM CALAMITY AND CATASTROPHE. "OUR TASK IS NOT THE TASK OF MEDIATION" SOEKARNO SAID, "NO, OUR TASK IS TO COMMUNICATE THE THOUGHTS AND CONCERN OF THE BELGRADE CONFERENCE TO YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, OUR THOUGHTS AND CONCERN ABOUT THE PRESENT SITUATION IN THE WORLD." (S.O.F.)
    LATER REPORTS FROM WASHINGTON INDICATE A CERTAIN COOLNESS TO THE PLEAS OF THE NON-ALIGNED FOR AN EARLY KENNEDY-KRUSCHEV MEETING. THE US GOVERNMENT HAS MADE CLEAR ITS DISAPPOINTMENT WITH THE WEAK RESPONSE OF THE NON-ALIGNED TO THE RESUMPTION BY USSR OF NUCLEAR TESTING.

    THE US HAS REJECT D RUSSIAN'S LATEST DEMAND THAT THE WEST SHOULD DEAL WITH EAST GERMANY IN MATTERS CONCERNING EAST BERLIN, AND KENNEDY HAS PROPOSED A MEETING NEXT WEEK BETWEEN DEAN RUSK, US FOREIGN SECRETARY, AND MR. GROMYKO, HIS SOVIET COUNTERPART, WHEN BOTH ARE IN NEW YORK FOR THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
