JFK Meets with Gromyko

Oct. 18, 1962 - Andrei A. Gromyko (third from left) met with President Kennedy today in a continuation of the exchange of views between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. on Berlin and other disputes. The Soviet Foreign Minister went to the White House at his own request, apparently to pave the way for yet another round of talks. His visit strengthened the impression that the Berlin dispute would enter its fifth year next month with the two sides still talking and still deadlocked. On leaving the White House, Mr. Gromyko said: “The President and I discussed several important matters, among them the question of the German peace settlement. I think the exchange of views on such matters was useful.”
