Khrushchev Says Nuclear Weapons Should Not Be Given to Middle East

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Soviet Premier Khrushchev has agreed, in his talks with British Foreign Secretary R.A. Butler, that the Middle East is one area where the principle of non-dissemination of nuclear weapons should be applied in a practical sense, it was reported here today from Moscow.

It was also reported that Soviet Foreign Minister Gromyko reiterated to the British diplomat the Soviet stand of categorical refusal to “put up one kopek, shilling or cent” for United Nations peacekeeping activities in the Middle East and in the Congo. The Soviets consider these operations “unlawful.”
