Acheson Would Consult Arab States on Middle East Command

Secretary of State Dean Acheson said today that the Arab states should be consulted on Anglo-American plans for a Middle East command.

He said England has circulated a draft of such a proposal and that there was no great difference between the British and American views. The Secretary declared that the Arabs would be consulted before views are finally crystalized on the Middle East command, but that it did not appear that such crystalization would occur in the immediate future.
