  • Description

    A 10-power technical conference on means of reducing world risk of surprise attack opened in Geneva, November 10. It was running parallel with the current three-power political conference on the discontinuance of nuclear weapon tests.

    Seen arriving for the surprise attack conference, November 8, was leader of the British delegation, General Sir Robert Mansergh.

    The conference on discontinuance of tests had failed to agree by the time the second conference opened. The delegates had been meeting since October 31.

    But there was at least an optimistic note on the eve of the surprise attack conference.

    Said Soviet deputy Foreign Minister Kuznetsov, on arrival in Geneva, November 9: "The conference must work out recommendations to Government about measures for the prevention of surprise attack and international co-operation in other measures in the general sphere of disarmament.

    "There is no doubt that we will do our best and the conference will be a success."
    The results of both conferences will be reported to the United Nations.
