  • Description

    Meeting over breakfast at New York's Waldorf Astoria hotel, Sept 27, President Eisenhower and Prime Minister Macmillan covered a wide range of problems in two and a half hours' talks.

    Mr Hagerty, the President's Press Secretary, said afterwards the two leaders had found themselves in complete agreement on the United Nations' vital role, particularly in the Congo, and on the need to give Secretary-General Hammarskjoeld full support.

    In a joint statement the two statesmen called for "serious, sober and constructive work" in the General Assembly, especially on disarmament. Their spokesman said it was correct to say that Mr Macmillan was not acting as mediator between the President and Soviet Premier Khrushchev.

    Nevertheless, a meeting between Mr Macmillan and Mr Khrushchev may soon be forthcoming. The Soviet leader nodded when asked by a reporter if they would meet. Pressed to say when, he replied: "Whenever we can arrange it."
    Britain's Prime Minister had talks with various statesmen during the course of a busy day, and he lunched with ten heads of UN delegations, including a number of African leaders. Later he was to see President Tito of Yugoslavia.
