Download PDF for this date

The U.S. and the Soviet Union will hold talks next week in Stockholm on the Middle East, the State Department announced Thursday.

According to spokesman Charles Redman, the talks are a continuation of similar discussions last February in Vienna and are within the framework of exchanges with the Soviets on a range of regional issues. He said they would take the form of “an exchange of views” rather than negotiations on strategy.

“We don’t intend to negotiate any agreements, nor do we anticipate any joint U.S.-Soviet actions to emerge from this kind of discussion,” Redman said. The U.S. delegation will be headed by Assistant Secretary of State for Near East and South Asian Affairs Richard Murphy.
