  • Description

    United States Secretary of State Christian Herter and Vice-President Richard Nixon were at National Airport, Washington, Jan. 17, to greet Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi of Japan, who was arriving to sign the new United States-Japanese security pact.

    Signing of the pact is scheduled to take place in the White House today, Jan 19. Mr. Kishi described the new agreement as a major pillar supporting the partnership of Japan and the United States, but the exact provisions of the pact have yet to be disclosed. They are not expected to cause any big changes in the near future in arrangements covering the 50,000 U.S. military personnel now in Japan.

    As Mr. Kishi left Tokyo airport for America, a large crowd of students tried unsuccessfully to prevent his departure and caused serious damage to the airport restaurant. They were protesting against the new pact. A number of the students were arrested.
