Britain's Premier Macmillan had first talks with Italian Premier Fanfani, Nov 21, on European Economic unity, soon after his arrival in Rome. With two statesmen at the meeting were the Foreign Ministers of both countries, Lord Home and Signor Segni.
Their discussions covered the difference between the "Six" and "Seven" trade areas and the relations between Eastern and Western Europe. The two leaders have agreed to a meeting of technical experts to help try and solve their economic differences.
On the second day of his visit, Nov 22, the British Prime Minister drove with Lord Home to the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior and laid a wreath. Here he was the first British Premier to inspect an Italian Guard of Honour since Mr. Neville Chamberlain's visit to Mussolini a few months before the Second World War broke out.
In the evening Mr. Macmillan broadcast on Rome television. Before he return home he will visit the Pope.
