    Background: Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev had tea with British Premier Macmillan at the British Embassy, Paris, France, May 15, the day before the Summit Conference formal opening.

    Mr. Khrushchev - accompanied by his Defence and Foreign Ministers, and by the Russian Ambassador to London - met Mr. Macmillan, Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd, and other British Foreign Office officials. An Embassy spokesman said there was a general discussion of the political situation in "unreasonable but serious atmosphere." The meeting was at Mr. Khrushchev's request, and falls into the general pattern of informal pre-Conference meetings which have taken place. There have now been get-togethers between all the leaders except Mr. Khrushchev and President Eisenhower.
