  • Description

    The Vice-President of the United States, Walter Mondale, ended a visit to Italy with an audience with Pope Paul and arrived in London, on Thursday (27 January).

    SYNOPSIS: The Italian government has won qualified support from the United States in its efforts to beat the country's chronic economic problems. While in Rome, Mr. Mondale spoke to newsmen about those problems.

    Mr. Mondale said, after his meeting with the Pope, that he hoped the audience would help launch the Carter administration's "pursuit of justice, peace and moral works". In a brief speech the Pope welcomed President Carter's arms limitation plans.

    Mr. Mondale then flew to London where he had talks with the British Prime Minister, Jim Callaghan. He was greeted there by the Foreign Secretary, Anthony Crosland. The British talks were expected to centre around the altering world economic recovery and the bitter Rhodesian independence dispute. Mr. Mondale spoke to newsmen about the purpose for his visit.

    Mr. Mondale then went to 10 Downing Street for his talks with Mr. Callaghan. British officials say the two were likely to agree on the exact dates for the Prime Minister's Washington talks with President Carter in mid-March. They were also expected to agree on co-operation by the richer industrial democracies in stimulating the world economy.
