    Background: President Nixon has had his first meeting with a high-ranking Soviet Minister since he took office nearly two years ago. He met with the Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko in Washington yesterday (Thursday October 22) for two-and-half hours and a White House spokesman described the meeting as helpful in laying the basis for improved relations between the two countries.

    The White House meeting came less than 24 hours after Mr Gromyko had severely criticised the United States in the United Nations when he questioned the desire of the United States to build confident relations with the Soviet Union.

    For more than two hours, the President and Mr Gromyko discussed the Middle East, berlin, Indo-China and strategic arms limitation. Also taking part in the talks were their advisers: Mr Henry Kissinger and Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin; but for the final 15 minutes Mr Nixon and Mr Gromyko had a private talks with only interpreters presents.

    After the meeting, the Soviet Embassy issued a statement saying Mr Gromyko expressed hope that his talk with the President would be of positive significance for the development and improvement of Soviet-American relations.
