    CANADA'S NEW PRIME MINISTER, MR. LESTER PEARSON, AND PRESIDENT KENNEDY YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) COMPLETED THEIR TWO-DAY?

  • Description

    CANADA'S NEW PRIME MINISTER, MR. LESTER PEARSON, AND PRESIDENT KENNEDY YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) COMPLETED THEIR TWO-DAY MEETING AT THE PRESIDENT'S SUMMER HOME IN HYANNIS PORT, MASSACHUSETTS. THE MAJOR OUTCOME WAS AN ANNOUNCEMENT THAT THEIR TWO GOVERNMENTS WOULD BEGIN DISCUSSIONS "WITHOUT DELAY" ON THE QUESTION OF CANADA ACCEPTING AMERICAN NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

    THIS WAS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE IN THE RECENT CANADIAN ELECTIONS WHICH BROUGHT MR. PEARSON TO POWER. HIS PREDECESSOR, MR. DIEFENBAKER, HAD REFUSED TO EQUIP CANADIAN MISSILES WITH THE NUCLEAR WARHEADS.

    AT AN IMPROMPTU PRESS CONFERENCE, PRESIDENT KENNEDY AND MR. PEARSON OUTLINED THE EXTENT OF THEIR WIDE-RANGING TALKS. THE SUBJECTS INCLUDED DISARMAMENT AND NUCLEAR TESTING, THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MULTI-LATERAL NUCLEAR FORCE FOR THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANISATION, AND SHARING OF DEFENCE PRODUCTION. INTERNATIONAL TRADE NEGOTIATIONS, TO BE HELD IN GENEVA SOON, ALSO WERE DISCUSSED.
