  • Description

    President Nixon, speaking at a press conference in Washington on Tuesday, warned that the Soviet Union could spark off another Middle East arms race by supplying large-scale shipments of weapons to Egypt.

    This was Mr. Nixon's first press conference since he announced on May the 20th there had been a break-through in the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks with the Soviet Union.

    Questioned about the Soviet's willingness to negotiate troop withdrawals from Europe, Mr. Nixon said the United States would make a move after it had completed consultations with its allies.
