    Background: NATO Secretary-General Joseph Luns, who conferred with President Ford and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in Washington yesterday, (February 24) agreed that the recent Congressional ban on military aid to Turkey could have serious consequences for negotiations on Cyprus and the defence of NATO's southern flank.

    The President and Dr. Luns conferred at the White House with Dr. Kissinger and former US ambassador to NATO Donald Lumfeldt, and Cyprus was high on the list of topics discussed - and in particular the ban on arms voted by Congress because Turkey used American weapons for the invasion of Cyprus last July.

    Other items on the agenda included NATO defence arrangements and status of East-West negotiations. After the meeting, it was announced that President ford has invited Dr. Luns to return to Washington this Spring for further consultations on NATO.
