  • Description

    IN ROME, MR MACMILLAN, THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, HAS SPENT THREE HOURS TODAY (FRIDAY) WITH THE ITALIAN PRIME MINISTER, SIGNOR FANFANI DISCUSSING THE NASSAU TALKS AND PLANS FOR A NATO NUCLEAR FORCE.

    MR MACMILLAN'S ROME VISIT WAS ARRANGED BEFORE THE BRUSSELS CRISIS, BUT THE LATE INCLUSION OF MR HEATH, HIS BRUSSELS NEGOTIATOR, IN THE PARTY, WAS TAKEN TO MEAN THAT THE CHANGED EUROPEAN POSITION WOULD DOMINATE THE TALKS TOMORROW (SATURDAY). THE ITALIAN GOVERNMENT HAS ALWAYS WORKED TOWARDS BRITAIN JOINING THE SIX.

    FOR MR MACMILLAN, IT IS HIS FIRST TALKS WITH A EUROPEAN LEADER SINCE THE COMMON MARKET BREAKDOWN. AT ROME AIRPORT, WHERE HE WAS GREETED BY THE ITALIAN PREMIER, HE SAID BRITAIN'S IDEAL WAS STILL THE UNITY OF EUROPE, IN PARTNERSHIP NOT IN RIVALRY.

    IN HIS ADDRESS OF WELCOME, SIGNOR FANFANI SAID THE IDEAL OF EUROPEAN UNITY WAS "AS ALIVE AMONG US AS IT EVER WAS." FOREIGN OBSERVERS REGARD SIGNOR FANFANI AS AIMING AT A POLICY OF CLOSE POLITICAL COLLABORATION WITH BRITAIN IN ANSWER TO PRESIDENT DE GAULLE'S VETO ON BRITISH COMMON MARKET ENTRY.

    MR MACMILLAN RETURNS TO LONDON ON SUNDAY. HE FLEW FROM LONDON ON A BOEING 707 OF NIGERIAN AIRWAYS.
