Prime Minister Macmillan and Lady Dorothy flew into the warm Oslo sunshine at the start of their four-day official visit to Norway. At the airport the visitors were greeted by their host Premier Gerhardsen of Norway, and his Foreign Minister Lange. Mr. Macmillan was also welcomed by Sir Peter Scarlett, the British Ambassador.
Unknown to both the Norwegian and British officials the Russian Ambassador Mr. Gribanov, had arrived to greet the British Prime Minister. It was only when Foreign Minister Lange caught sight of the Soviet official that Mr. Macmillan crossed the tarmac to talk to him.
Talking to the press at the airport the British leader said he was glad to be able to return the visit the Norwegian Premier made to Britain two years ago. He mentioned that the two countries were closely linked together, and both were determined to work together towards the common aim of a better world.
In the evening Mr. Macmillan attended a dinner given in his honour in Akershus Castle. Here the Norwegian Prime Minister paid tribute to his guest's efforts in easing international tension.
