  • Description

    At a crowded conference at the Palais de Chaillot, Paris, May 16, Press Secretary Hagerty told the world's newsmen what President Eisenhower had said in reply to soviet Premier Khrushchev's outspoken statement at the morning Summit meeting.

    Mr. Eisenhower said spy flights over Russia were purely defensive, had already been suspended and would not be resumed, and that the Soviet leader's "ultimatum" could never be accepted. He said Mr. Khrushchev had obviously come to Paris with the sole intention of sabotaging the Summit.

    After the two press conferences, U.K. Premier Macmillan saw his western colleagues and Premier Khrushchev in an effort to save the summit from failure.
