  • Description

    The arrival of Foreign Ministers Christian Herter, Couve de Murville and Gromyko at the Geneva villa of Britain's Selwyn Lloyd for a further meeting at the "Littler Summit", was filmed June 17 by VISNEWS. Agenda: Discussion of final details on the West's offer for an interim Berlin settlement.

    After only half an hour, Russian Foreign Minister Gromyko left -- without expressing any final view on the proposals. Another private meeting was arranged for June 18 - when it is expected Gromyko will have received his Government's instructions and will be able to state his final position.

    The West has little hope that Gromyko will be sufficiently positive to encourage the Foreign Ministers to prolong the conference -- now dragging towards its seventh week.

    In Washington, President Eisenhower said prospects for a Summit had not become brighter by the Geneva talks. He was ready to attend a Summit gathering if the progress justified it -- but Russia's unwillingness to negotiate had diminished the likelihood of a successful meeting of heads of State.
