Russian Foreign Minister Gromyko, Lother Bols of East Germany, Selwyn Lloyd, U.S. Ambassador Grewe, Couve?
Russian Foreign Minister Gromyko, Lother Bols of East Germany, Selwyn Lloyd, U.S. Ambassador Grewe, Couve de Murville and Christian Herter leave the Geneva Conference after a resumed plenary session July 22 aimed at removing a deadlock in the Berlin negotiations.
Gromyko gave an assurance that the Soviet Union would take no unilateral action over Berlin pending further talks at Geneva. While the conference was still in session, Premier Khrushchev again called for a summit.
The plenary session was resumed next day and again Khruschev reiterated his appeal for & summit.
Then referring to Vice-President Nixon's visit that day, Khruschev said it made no sense to send him to Moscow while the U.S. at the same time was organising a campaign of prayer for "people enslaved by the Communists".
The U.S. campaign had been organised at the moment when there was a possibility of improving relations between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. Mr. Khrushchev called it "direct interference in the Soviet Union's internal affairs".
