  • Description

    President Nixon said at the headquarters of Allied Forces Southern Europe in Naples on Wednesday (30 September) that NATO was strong, and united, and represented peace for all the peoples of western Europe.

    Mr. Nixon was on the second stage of his five-nation European tour.

    President Nixon met the top military commanders to assure western allies that they can rely on U.S. commitments for the defence of the Mediterranean and Europe.

    At a meeting in NATO building Mr. Nixon discussed western defence strategy in view of the Soviet Union's growing naval power in the Mediterranean with NATO commanders. He was accompanied by a team of experts including Defence Secretary Mr. Melvin Laird and State Secretary Mr. William Rogers.

    Also on the agenda was the visit President Nixon made to the U.S. Sixth Fleet on Tuesday (29 September).

    At NATO headquarters he said that America did not want to make the Mediterranean "an American sea, but a sea that will belong to all peoples."
    Mr. Nixon inspected a guard of honour in front of the NATO headquarters and was presented with a silver plaque to commemorate his visit by Commander-in-Chief Admiral Horatio Rivero.

    After conferring with U.S. Ambassadors in the Mediterranean area President Nixon flew to Belgrade for two days of talks with President Tito.
