  • Description

    The Secretary General of the Soviet Union's Communist Party, Mr. Leonid Brezhnev is now in Paris for a summit with President Pompidou of France. He flew there from the Andrews Air Force base near Washington after his week of talks in the United States with President Nixon.

    Vice-President Spiro Agnew babe Mr. Brezhnev farewell on Monday (25th June). The Soviet leader had said goodbye to President Nixon the previous day in California.

    A joint communique issued as Mr. Brezhnev departed, said the summit was a "milestones in efforts towards world peace". The Russian and American leaders pledged themselves "to a goal of European security", but were unable to agree on ways to end the Middle East crisis.

    In a pre-recorded television speech broadcast on Sunday (24th June), Mr. Brezhnev declared the cold war was virtually over, but voiced concern over the Middle East situation which he called a hot bed of dangerous tension threatening world peace. He spoke warmly of the American people and of President Nixon, and made a strong appeal for expanded trade between the Soviet Union and the United States.
