    Background: President Ford, of the United States, met Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko in Washington on Friday (20 September) to discuss a variety of issues, including trade and Jewish emigration. The two men talked for two and a half hours.

    A White House spokesman, Mr. John Hushen, would not disclose details of the meeting. However, it was thought President Ford may have attempted to persuade the Soviets to ease emigration barriers, in return for better trading terms from the United States.

    Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger, who met Mr. Gromyko later, has repeatedly stated that improved trade and continued detente could lead to an easing of restrictions within the Soviet Union.
