  • Description

    The Right Honourable John G. Gorton, Prime Minister of Australia, today (May 8, 1969) paid a call on Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird at the Pentagon to discuss common objectives of the two Allied countries.

    In a statement made at his arrival in Washington, Prime Minister Gorton said, "My visit to Washington is not to deal with any one specific subject. I regard it, rather as a practical expression of the close, frank, and continuing relationship between two good friends - Australia and the United States.

    "Our two countries share many common objectives. We both want a world where nations big and small can live in independence and security; develop their standards of living, and share in an expanding world economy. In this world of change we want change to occur peacefully and to be of a king designed to lead to better lives for all men.

    "We can and must work together to help achieve this."
    Prime Minister Gorton departs Washington from Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland, this afternoon.
