  • Description

    At the opening of the NATO Parliamentary Conference in Paris on November 12, American representative Senator Jackson proposed the formation of a NATO training centre for guided missiles.

    Making his suggestion with the full approval of the State Department, the Senator said that some of the countries belonging to the Alliance were familiar with the planning and operational problems of the use of defensive missiles: others had little such knowledge.

    A common, uniform knowledge of guided missiles, he said, was needed for the whole NATO community, and to secure this a long and intensive system of training was necessary.

    These and other remarks were taken by several delegates, including Britain's Mr. George Brown, as an indication that the United States may be prepared, now, to repeal the McMahon Act to allow the exchange of information with her allies.
