  • Description

    Big Four talks on the Middle East situation were held at the French Mission to the United Nations in New York on Thursday (17 March).

    Although the outcome -- if any -- of the talks was not revealed, and the delegates only said they had agreed to meet again next week at the Soviet Mission, the political ramifications of the meeting are of obvious importance. This production shows some interesting footage of the delegates together.

    SYNOPSIS: Following talks in New York on Thursday (March 17) between United Nations Secretary-General U That and Israeli Foreign Minister Mr. Abba Eban on the Middle East situation, delegates from the Big Four powers met at the French Mission to the U.N. to continue their own discussions on the subject. Soviet Ambassador to the United Nations Jacob Malice was first to arrive, followed closely by British Ambassador Sir Colin Crowe.

    The United States representative at the talks, aimed at establishing the role of the Big Four in a Middle East settlement, was Ambassador George Bush, who was later due to have separate talks with Mr. Eban.

    No statement was released after the Big Four meeting, except to say that they would meet again next week at the Soviet Mission. Standing in for the French Ambassador Jacques Kosciuske-Morizet, who was in Paris, was his Deputy Francois de la Gorce.
