Expect Nixon to Discuss Mideast with Wilson on Last Leg of Trip Home

State Department sources said today that it is “very likely” that President Richard M, Nixon would review the latest Middle East developments with British Premier Harold Wilson when he stops off in London on the last leg of his round-the-world tour on Aug. 3. White House spokesman Ronald Ziegler announced today that Mr. Nixon has added Britain to his itinerary. He will also visit Asian countries and Rumania.

Sources here said the President and Premier Wilson would most likely discuss the current bilateral U.S.-Soviet talks on the Mideast. The Four Power Mideast talks in which Britain is a participant along with France, the Soviet Union and the U.S. have recessed without a date being set for their resumption.
