  • Description

    On the third day of his five-day state visit to Japan, President Gerald Ford met with Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka of Japan for a second and last round of scheduled summit talks at the State Guesthouse in Tokyo on November 20th, Wednesday.

    At the two leaders met Japanese newspapers and bulletins carried reports about the possible resignation of Premier Tanak. President Ford has been careful, say the reports, to meet with Premier Tanaka only when accompanied by a suite of aides in order not to associate himself with the possible imminent downfall and resignation of Tanak, who is now under fire for alleged irregularities in his personal finances while in office.

    At wednesday's meeting President Ford was accompanied by a large American delegation including Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. The delegations were expected to discuss the question of America's alleged use of nuclear arms by forces based in Japan, and also the possibility of Japan joining an American-proposed oil-consumers carte.

    President Ford will stay in Tokyo until his departure for the old Japanese Capital of Kyoto on Thursday morning (21st November). After a day touring the old castles and temples of Kyoto the Presidential party leaves Japan on Friday (22nd November for South Korea and Valadivostok, U.S.A.R.
