  • Description

    RESUMING AFTER A RECESS OF TEN MONTHS, THE INTERNATIONAL DISARMAMENT CONFERENCE IN GENEVA TODAY (TUESDAY) AGREED ON ONE POINT - THAT NUCLEAR WEAPONS WERE CONTINUING TO SPREAD.OTHERWISE, THE FIRST DAY OF THE DISCUSSION BETWEEN EAST AND WEST ENDED APPARENTLY NOWHERE NEAR ANY EARLY CONCRETE AGREEMENT.

    THE CHIEF SOVIET DELEGATE, MR.TSARAPKIN SOUNDED A GRAVE WARNING ABOUT THE PROLIFERATION OF NUCLEAR ARMS."FULL SPEED IS BEING MADE TO PREPARE FOR A GREAT WAR," HE SAID.

    MR.TSARAPKIN, WHO WAS IN THE CHAIR, SAID INSTEAD OF REDUCTION, ARMAMENT PRODUCTION WAS STEPPED UP.INSTEAD OF NON-DISSEMINATION OF ATOMIC WEAPONS, THERE WERE PLANS FOR A NATO SEABORNE NUCLEAR FORCE.AND INSTEAD OF REDUCTION OF ARMED FORCES, THE PARTIAL MOBILISATION OF RESERVISTS WAS PLANNED, HE SAID.

    THE AMERICAN CHIEF DELEGATE, MR.WILLIAM FOSTER READ A MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT JOHNSON ON THE NEED TO LIMIT WHAT HE CALLED THE PERILOUS SPREAD OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS.THE TEXT WENT ON: "MY NATION IS READY.IF OTHERS ARE EQUALLY PREPARED, THEN WE CAN MOVE, WITH GROWING CONFIDENCE, TOWARDS THE LIGHT."
    IN ANOTHER MESSAGE, THE UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY-GENERAL, U THANT SAID THAT THE RESOLUTIONS BEFORE THE DELEGATES ONCE AGAIN DEMONSTRATED THE GROWING CONCERN OVER THE BROADENING OF THE NUCLEAR ARMS RACE.

    WESTERN EXPERTS AMONG THE 17 NATIONS AT THE CONFERENCE ARE NOW REVISING A BRITISH DRAFT TREATY TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS.THE IDEA MAY GO FORWARD LATER AS A JOINT PLAN OF BRITAIN, THE UNITED STATES, CANADA AND ITALY.

    FRANCE CONTINUES TO BOYCOTT THE CONFERENCE ON GROUNDS THAT IT IS TOO UNWIELDY A FORUM FROM REAL NEGOTIATIONS ON COMPLEX NUCLEAR ISSUES.THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA, THE LATEST NUCLEAR POWER, IS NOT AT THE CONFERENCE.
