  • Description

    ISRAEL'S NEW PRIME MINISTER, MRS. GOLDA MEIR, HAD TALKS WITH BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY MICHAEL STEWART AT THE FOREIGN OFFICE IN LONDON TODAY (JUNE 13).

    THE MEETING, WHICH LASTED FORTY-FIVE MINUTES, CAME ON THE THIRD DAY OF MRS. MEIR'S VISIT TO BRITAIN. FOREIGN OFFICE SPOKESMEN SAID THAT SHE AND MR. STEWART CONCENTRATED ON MIDDLE EAST PROBLEMS, WITH PARTICULAR EMPHASIS ON THE FOUR POWER DISCUSSIONS IN NEW YORK AMONG THE SOVIET UNION, THE UNITED STATES, FRANCE, AND BRITAIN.

    THE FOREIGN SECRETARY TOLD MRS. MEIR OF BRITAIN'S FIRM CONVICTION THAT FOUR POWER TALKS OFFER THE BEST HOPE FOR A MIDDLE EAST SOLUTION. BUT SHE, AS SHE TOLD FOREIGN PRESS REPRESENTATIVES YESTERDAY (12 JUNE) WOULD PREFER THE ARAB STATES TO SHOULDER THEIR OWN RESPONSIBILITIES INSTEAD OF HAVING OTHER STATES TAKE THEM OVER. SHE RESTATED TO MR. STEWART HER GOVERNMENT'S PREFERENCE FOR DIRECT NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE ARABS.

    OFFICIALS SAID THAT THE MINISTERS DID NOT DISCUSS THE QUESTION OF AN INTERM COMMUNIQUE BEING ISSUED IN NEW YORK ABOUT THE PROGRESS OF THE FOUR-POWER TALKS.

    MRS. MEIR ARRIVED AT THE FOREIGN OFFICE WITH A MOTOR-CYCLE ESCORT AND SECURITY GUARDS. AS SHE LEFT SHE TOLD REPORTERS HOW GLAD SHE WAS TO HAVE MET MR. STEWART AGAIN. THEY FIRST MET IN 1957 WHEN HE VISITED ISRAEL.
