  • Description

    President Nixon and Japanese Prime Minister Eisaku Sato agreed on Friday (7 January) on a compromise date of May 15 for placing the strategic Pacific island of Okinawa under full Japanese control.

    They announced the date in a joint statement at the end of their two-day summit meeting which was convened as part of President Nixon's briefing to allied countries before his trip to Peking later this month.

    The two leaders were also reported to have agreed to establish a "hot line" between Tokyo and Washington for instant communication in case of emergency.
