    Background: A meeting of Western Foreign Ministers was held at the State Department, Washington, Apr 12, to discuss and prepare their tactic for the summit conference, due to be held in May. Talks will continue in Washington until Apl 14.

    Britain's Selwyn Lloyd, France's Couve de Murville and Christian Herter of the United States, met in private before asking West German Foreign Minister von Brentano, Canada's Minister of External Affairs Green and Italian Foreign Minister Segni, to join them. One of the subjects under discussion is the disarmament problem which is holding up the Geneva conference.

    On April 14, the Foreign Ministers of France, Britain and the United States, will meet Secretary-General Spaak, of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, to discuss various topics in east-west relations, and their effect on the summit conference. Another matter will be given attention is the status of West Berlin and West Germany as a whole.

    Both President Eisenhower and Mr. Macmillan have expressed themselves in favour of an informal meeting of the four Heads of Government, rather than a conference room crowded with experts and heads of departments.
