As the present session of the U.N. General Assembly continues in New York, leaders from many countries have been meeting privately for formal and informal discussions. At the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel Sept. 26, President Eisenhower had talks with both Indian Premier Nehru and United Arab Republic President Gamal Nasser.
It was reported that the U.S. President requested their support against Soviet Premier Khrushchev's plan to replace U.N. Secretary-General Hammarskjoeld with a three-nation directorate. During their friendly discussions, President Nasser is said to have invited the President to visit Cairo in the near future.
There were between 20 and 25 informal meetings of foreign leaders during the day. Newly arrived British Premier Macmillan had lunch with Mr. Nehru and Canadian Prime Minister Diefenbaker, and later saw President Nkrumah of Ghana. Mr. Nehru also met Mr. Hammarskjoeld and Mr. Boland, new Irish President of the Assembly, before going on for talks with Mr. Khrushchev. Many were hoping for a strong lead from Mr. Nehru who was soon expected to have seen everyone of importance.
