  • Description

    The Saudi Arabian Second Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, Prince Fahd Ibn Abdul Aziz, had talks with President Richard Nixon and Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger at the White House in Washington on Thursday (6 June).

    Afterwards, all three men emphasised that oil had not been the major topic of discussion. The fact that Saudi Arabia is the world's greatest producer of oil had led to speculation that the United States was seeking a deal that would guarantee her oil supplies.

    In a toast at their working lunch, Prince Fahd said the friendship between the United States and Saudi Arabia was based on goodwill -- not the exchange of material goods.

    Dr. Kissinger said that discussion was centred on Saudi Arabia's industrial expansion and some of its defence needs. A State Department spokesman added these needs include Phantom jet fighters and Hawk missiles.

    Saudi Arabia is one of five countries President Nixon will visit on his coming tour of the Middle East.
