Background: The Big Four United Nations ministers met again Wednesday (15 July) in their continuing quest to being peace to the Middle East.
The meeting, held against a backdrop of American hopes that the Russians and the Egyptians were giving serious consideration to the latest American peace proposal, was held at the Park Avenue apartment of Frederick Walker, the deputy British U.N. ambassador. A full ambassador has now yet arrived in New York from the new Conservative government of Britain.
Both France and the United States were also represented by deputies, the French by Claude Chayet and the U.S. by William B. Buffam. The American permanent ambassador, Charles Yost, and the French permanent ambassador, M. Jacques Kosiusko-Morizet, are out of the country. The Soviet Union was represented by its long-time ambassador, Jacob Malik.
As is customary in the long series of talks, the ambassadors had nothing to say to newsmen as they entered the building.
It is known, however, that U.S. Secretary of State William P. Rogers is hopeful that the long series of talks in Moscow between Soviet officials and Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser would proved a comprehensive response to the American peace plan.
The proposal called for a three-month cease-fire and subsequent negotiations through the United Nations negotiator, Dr. Gunnar V. Jarring.
