Title Visit by Dr Henry Kissinger of United States to UK, September (1972)
Description Dr Kissinger aim in coming to London was to bring the UK government up to date on his visit to Moscow and discuss European security, Vietnam, US/Soviet trade and preparations for SALT II, the Middle East, and Germany. Kissinger's visit to Moscow was a way of counter balancing in the Soviet's eyes the President's preoccupation with Far Eastern questions and his meeting with the Prime Minister of Japan Mr Tanaka and the subsequent Kissinger's subsequent visit to Paris after London will demonstrate that the President is keeping his European allies informed.
