  • Description

    A TWO-DAY CONFERENCE OF NATO DEFENCE MINISTERS OPENED IN PARIS TODAY - MONDAY. THE MAIN ITEM TO BE DISCUSSED WAS EXPECTED TO BE WHETHER OR NOT THE NUCLEAR DETERRENT SHOULD BE USED IF THE SECURITY OF THE NATO AREA WERE TO BE THREATENED.

    SPEAKING AT THE MEETING, THE UNITED STATES DEFENCE SECRETARY MR. ROBERT MCNAMARA, URGED DELEGATES TO CONSIDER IMMEDIATELY THE POSSIBILITY OF SETTING UP A SPECIAL NATO COMMITTEE ON NUCLEAR POLICY. HE SAID THAT NATO SHOULD WORRY LESS ABOUT A MASSIVE ATTACK ON WESTERN EUROPE FROM THE EAST - AND SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON ELIMINATING FRICTION IN BERLIN, AND GUARDING AGAINST TROUBLES IN EASTERN EUROPE WHICH MIGHT SPREAD TO THE ALLIANCE'S DEFENCE AREA. MR. MCNAMARA SAID THAT MANY ISSUES BEFORE THE MINISTERS RESULTED FROM "OBSOLETE JUDGEMENT" OF THE NATURE OF THE SOVIET THREAT.

    AS THE MEETING OPENED IT WAS REVEALED THAT FRANCE INTENDS TO BOYCOTT NATO'S KEY TACTICAL AND STRATEGIC EXERCISE, CODE-NAMED "FALLEX" NEXT YEAR.
