Bridges told a news conference yesterday the Republicans agreed they should not permit the Kae- song truce talks to interfere with an expression of their views on what he called "fundamental issues" in Far Eastern policy. Russell argued that any formal committee report now might in- terfere not only with the Kaesong negotiations but might put diffi- culties in the way of the signing of the Japanese peace treaty ,at San Francisco early next month.
