  • Description

    Speaking at a Press conference in Washington, Mar 25, on the eve of Prime Minister Macmillan's arrival, US Secretary of State Christian Herter said parts of the Russian proposal at the Geneva nuclear test talks were obviously unacceptable. It would be a violation of long-standing United States policy to agree to any test suspension without proper supervision.

    Mr. Herter's statement followed the rejection by Soviet delegate Zorin in Geneva, Mar 25, of America's proposal that concrete discussions on disarmament control should begin next week. Russia maintains that this would men "putting the cart before the horse". Mr Zorin declared the Soviet Union was prepared to discuss the problem of international relations in controlling a disarmed world, after the completion of the disarmament programme set out in the Russian plan.
