  • Description

    U.S. President Lyndon Johnson publicly replied on Wednesday (23 March) to French President Charles De Gaulle's recent policy statements on French participation in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. President De Gaulle has indicated that he wishes France to withdraw from NATO and that NATO bases on French soil be placed under French control or closed down; Mr. Johnson deplored this policy and stressed U.S. determination to continue with NATO, and, if possible, expand it.

    Much of the speech was a review of NATO's history since its creation in 1949, and a criticism of independent defense action by any European nation outside the NATO framework. In the excerpt shown in our film, the U.S. president stated his position thus:
    Mr. Johnson spoke at the State Department in Washington before the Foreign Service Institute.
