Download PDF for this date

Undersecretary of State Elliot L. Richardson told Emerson College graduates here yesterday that the U.S. was awaiting specific moves by the Soviet Union to prove they mean to reduce global tensions in the Mideast, as well as in Vietnam and Berlin,

He voiced hope for resolution of the Mideast dispute with the observation that a start of a downward spiral in strains in that region may have begun. He said Washington has explained to Israel why the Big Four support implementation of the Security Council’s 1967 resolution. “And I know the Israelis understand this position,” he said.
