  • Description

    British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan and Australian Premier Menzies arrived at the White House, Washington, Oct 2, for an urgent exchange of views with President Eisenhower on the est way of meeting Premier Khrushchev's tactics at the UN General Assembly.

    Officials said the discussions - lasting 90 minutes - had continued the examination - begun in New York the previous week between the President and Mr Macmillan - of current problems facing the United nations. The three Government leaders were agreed in the hope that the General Assembly would henceforth be able to achieve real progress, particularly in the field of disarmament.

    It was felt that one point clearly discussed was the growing pressure of "neutral" members of the United Nations for a personal reconciliation, or at least a meeting between the President and Mr Khrushchev.

    The two Prime Ministers, having again discussed matters privately were to talk again with President Eisenhower, Secretary-of-State Herter, and other close advisers to the President before returning to New York in the same Royal Air Force Comet that had flown them to Washington the night before.
