  • Description

    Visnews filmed the meeting of US President Eisenhower and Mr. Anastas Mikoyan, First Deputy Premier of the USSR, at the White House, Washington, Jan 17.

    The meeting culminated Mr. Mikoyan's two week 'holiday' in the United States, during which he was visited many cities and attended many functions.

    Following the one and three quarter hour meeting between Ike and 'Mik' it was learned that the United States will now explore the possibility of a 'Big Four' conference on the Berlin crisis at Foreign Minister Level. The meeting was described as 'useful' and was the first 'High level' contact between Russia and America since the 1955 Geneva 'Big Four' conference.

    It was announced in Washington Jan 18 that Mr Mikoyan has cancelled plans for a two or three day visit to Florida and will fly back to Moscow Jan 20. This will give extra time for his impressions to be studied by Mr Kruschev before the 21st Communist party Congress which opens Jan 27.
