  • Description

    In the United States, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has been conducting hearings into the appointment of Dr. Henry Kissinger as Secretary of State.

    Dr. Kissinger, who has served 4 1/2 years as President Nixon's national security advisor, was nominated by the President last month to succeed Mr. William Rogers.

    Dr. Kissinger made his first appearance before the Committee on the 7th September. He pledged, as Secretary, to work closely with Congress and America's allies to shape "a new world" of peace.

    The committee also heard testimony from critics and supporters of Dr. Kissinger's nomination. At the hearings on Friday (4 September) former Senator Ernest Greening agreed that a vote for Dr. Kissinger would be interpreted as Senate approval of the Nixon administration's past and present Indo-China policies. Senator George McGovern, who fought Mr. Nixon for the Presidency in the last elections, replied that a man could disagree with Nixon policies and still vote for Dr. Kissinger.

    Dr. Kissinger is to appear before the Committee again on Monday (17 September).
