  • Description

    VISNEWS June 15 filmed Britain's Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd arriving back at Geneva Airport after a week-end of talks with Premier Macmillan and the Cabinet, and later the four Foreign Ministers arriving at the villa of France's Couve de Murville for a private session.

    Object of the two and a half hour meeting is believed to have been a prolonged attempt by the three Western Ministers to induce Russia's Andrei Gromyko to drop his proposals for Berlin, but to no avail. They agreed to meet again June 17.

    Outstanding question for the next few days is whether the Big Four will decide a date for a Summit Conference before breaking up. Any Western move to adjourn without fixing such a date is expected to meet with stiff opposition from Gromyko.

    The Russians are reported to be working on a declaration in which East and West would pledge themselves not to worsen the Berlin situation pending a Summit meeting.
