Download PDF for this date

State Department spokesman Charles Bray said today that the United States will intensify its quest for an interim agreement in the Middle East to reopen the Suez Canal but would not say what form the quest would take. He reaffirmed that talks in that direction on the ministerial level are over and were not to be resumed. Bray said the administration’s review of the Middle East military balance would start in the “coming days.” The State Department has not yet explained where and on what level such reviews take place. According to informed sources the White House, Pentagon and State Department are all participants.
