Background: U.S. President Gerald Ford met British Prime Minister Harold Wilson for a working breakfast at the start of the second day of the NATO Summit in Brussels on Friday (30 May). U.S. Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger and British Foreign Secretary James Callaghan were also present.
The Alliance's problems -- the Portuguese situation and the Greek-Turkish dispute -- were high on the agenda.
During the morning session Mr. Wilson told the 15 members of NATO that it was not good having a credible external defence if its economic framework lay in tatters.
Earlier, President Ford had chastised what he called part-time members of the Alliane - France, Turkey and Greece.
The Turkish-Greek dispute over Cyprus was one of the major talking points of the meeting, as was the political situation in Portugal.
Later on Friday, Mr. Ford held separate talks with Canada's Prime Minister, Pierre Elliott Trudeau.
