  • Description

    THE 17-NATION DISARMAMENT CONFERENCE RESUMED IN GENEVA TODAY (MONDAY) AFTER NEARLY 3 MONTH'S RECESS. BOTH EAST AND WEST ARE URGING THAT THE OUTCOME OF THE CUBA CRISIS SHOULD LEAD TO A HALT TO THE ARMS RACE THROUGH AN AGREEMENT IN GENEVA. BUT, ON THE BIG ISSUES DIVIDING THE TWO SIDES, THERE WERE NO SIGNS OF BREAKTHROUGH.

    RUSSIA CONTINUED TO INSIST THAT WESTERN INSISTENCE ON INTERNATIONAL CONTROL OVER A TEST BAN TREATY WAS "LEGALISED ESPIONAGE." THE SOVIET DELEGATE, MR. SEMYON TSARAPKIN, ALSO LINKED RUSSIA'S CALL FOR THE ELIMINATION OF NUCLEAR DELIVERY VEHICLES TO RUSSIA'S DEMAND FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF ALL MILITARY BASES ON FOREIGN SOIL. BOTH DEMANDS HAVE BEEN UNACCEPTABLE TO THE WEST.

    MR. ARTHUR DEAN, CHIEF AMERICAN DELEGATE, TOLD REPORTERS AFTERWARDS THAT TODAY'S CONFERENCE HAD ESTABLISHED A CONSTRUCTIVE BASIS ARGUING WELL FOR THE FUTURE. AND AT THE SHORT PUBLIC SESSION, BEFORE THE CONFERENCE STARTED, HE TOLD THE DELEGATES: "LET NOT OUR CHILDREN LOOK BACK AT US AND OUR GOVERNMENTS AND SAY 'THEY FAILED THEIR MOMENT."
    BOTH DELEGATES REFERRED TO THE CUBA CRISIS DANGER OF NUCLEAR WAR AND IN MESSAGES TO THE CONFERENCE BOTH PRESIDENT KENNEDY AND U THANT SENT HOPES OF AGREEMENT ON A NUCLEAR TEST BAN. BUT AT THE END OF THE FIRST EAST AND WEST WERE NO NEARER TO AGREEING TO IT.

    THE NEXT SESSIONS OF THE DISARMAMENT CONFERENCE AND ITS THREE-POWER NUCLEAR TEST BAN SUB-COMMITTEE ARE DUE TO RESUME ON WEDNESDAY
