  • Description

    The United States Secretary of State, William Rogers, met British Foreign Secretary, Sir Alec Douglas-Home and other Government leaders at Dorneywood near London on Saturday (11 July).

    After the meeting, which came during a two-day visit to Britain, Mr. Rogers said that he expects a response to the American Middle-East peace initiative when President Nasser leaves Moscow where he has been holding talks with Soviet leaders for the last two weeks.

    On the subject of possible British arms to South Africa, Mr. Rogers said it was inappropriate for him to comment but added "there will be some unhappiness if there is a change of position by the United Kingdom." Mr. Rogers also said he welcomed Britain's intention to keep a military presence East of Suez after 1971.

    Mr. Antony Barber, Britain's Common Market negotiator, was among the British ministers present at Dorneywood.
