  • Description

    THE PROPOSED MULTILATERAL NUCLEAR FORCE WAS THE TALKING POINT AS NATO DIPLOMATS MET IN PARIS TODAY (MONDAY). BUT THE MLF "BOMB" WAS NOT EXPECTED TO EXPLODE DURING THE TWO DAY MINISTERIAL COUNCIL MEETING OPENING IN THE CITY TOMORROW.

    BRITAIN'S FOREIGN SECRETARY - WHO ARRIVED IN PARIS THIS AFTERNOON - HANDED TO THE FRENCH A DOCUMENT OUTLINING BRITAIN'S PROPOSALS FOR AN ATLANTIC NUCLEAR FORCE. AFTER AN HOUR'S TALK BETWEEN MR. GORDON WALKER AND THE FRENCH FOREIGN SECRETARY, M. COUVE DE MURVILLE, A SPOKESMAN SAID THEIR VIEWS REMAINED AS THEY WERE BEFORE -- EXTREMELY DIFFERENT.

    THE BRITISH AND FRENCH FOREIGN MINISTERS ALSO AGREED THAT MR. WILSON, THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, WOULD GO TO FRANCE SOON FOR TALKS WITH PRESIDENT DE GAULLE. NO DATE FOR MR. WILSON'S VISIT WAS FIXED BUT IT IS EXPECTED TO BE AFTER HIS TRIP TO GERMANY IN JANUARY.

    MR. RUSK AND M. COUVE DE MURVILLE MET FOR AN HOUR TODAY AND DISCUSSED THE CONGO, SOUTHEAST ASIA AND EASTERN EUROPE. A FRENCH FOREIGN MINISTRY SPOKESMAN SAID THEY ALSO TALKED OVER PROBLEMS DUE TO COME UP AT THE NATO COUNCIL SESSION.

    LATER, MR. RUSK DROVE TO THE ELYSEE FOR TALKS WITH PRESIDENT DE GAULLE, WHO STRONGLY OPPOSES THE AMERICAN MLF PROPOSALS. HE IS SAID TO HAVE ASSURED THE FRENCH PRESIDENT THAT UNITED STATES POLICIES SEEK IN NO WAY TO ISOLATE FRANCE. THEIR CONVERSATION, WHICH LASTED 1 1/2 HOURS, WAS STATED TO BE ALMOST ENTIRELY DEVOTED TO NATO PROBLEMS. MR.RUSK ALSO HAD SEPARATE TALKS WITH M. POMPIDOU.

    MR. GORDON WALKER, MR. RUSK AND DR. SCHROEDER WERE GUESTS OF M. DE MURVILLE TONIGHT FOR DINNER. WEST GERMANY WAS SAID TO HOPE FOR A STRONG WESTERN DECLARATION ON INTENT ON THE GERMAN ISSUE TO COME OUT OF TALKS AT THIS DINNER MEETING. THE DECLARATION IS EXPECTED TO REINFORCE WESTERN ALLIED RIGHTS IN GERMANY AND TO CALL ON THE SOVIET UNION TO ACCEPT ITS RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS REUNIFICATION OF THE COUNTRY.
