    Background: Delegations from ten nations gathered in Geneva, June 7, to re open the East-West disarmament conference. With the recent Summit Conference ending in failure, these talks have taken on added importance. A day before the conference was due to begin the Western delegates met to review the situation, before the formal negotiations began.

    On arrival at Geneva airport the British delegate Ormsby-Gore, stated that the order of steps proposed by the USSR, towards disarmament was unsatisfactory. He expressed the hope the revised Russian plan might provide a basis for negotiations.

    During the present session the conference will be under the chairmanship of Canada's General Burns. After their pre-conference meeting the Western delegates agreed that the revised Russian proposals of general and complete disarmament represents at least some improvement.
