  • Description

    United States Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko arrived in Geneva Switzerland on Thursday (10 July) for two days of talks on peace in the Middle East, European security and nuclear disarmament.

    Before flying to the Swiss city, Dr. Kissinger stopped briefly in Paris for talks with the French President, Valery Giscard d'Estaing, aimed at resuming the postponed talks between oil consuming and producing countries.

    Strict security precautions were in force at Geneva's Cointrin airport for the arrival of both leaders, some four hours apart. Police armed with sub-machine guns ringed the tarmac and motorcycle outriders and jeeploads of armed soldiers escorted them both separately into the city.

    Mr. Gromyko particularly mentioned Europe as a topic for discussion when he arrived but added: "as always we have no lack of subjects for discussion."
    Dr. Kissinger was also expected to brief Mr. Gromyko on his latest attempts to bring about a Middle East peace agreement by exchanging Israeli troop withdrawals in Sinai for Egyptian concessions. Mr. Gromyko has been critical of the Secretary of State's step-by-step diplomacy in the Middle East and has advocated a resumption of the Geneva peace conference.

    Prospects for a new Strategic Arms Limitation (Salt) Agreement will also be a central issue during the summit meeting.
