  • Description

    The British Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Mr David Ormsby-Gore, was received at the State Department, Washington, Feb 23, for the first of many meetings arranged to define the Anglo-American positions on the nuclear tests ban.

    Present at the meeting with Mr Ormsby-Gore were Mr John McCloy, President Kennedy's disarmament adviser, Sir Harold Caccia, British Ambassador to the United States, and Chief U.S. Negotiator, Arthur Dean.

    The meeting - preceded by an exchange of working papers - was mainly concerned with compromise both by Russia and America. President Kennedy had pledged himself to make at least one more attempt to reach agreement with the Soviet Union before resuming nuclear tests.

    By agreement with Premier Khrushchev, the resumption of negotiations with Russia on the problem of the nuclear tests ban was postponed until March 21. President Kennedy had asked for more time for careful preparations.
