Advocate (Newspaper) - December 14, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 221 Rusk Quick To Tell Off De Gaulle NATO Talks Sethi Paris PARIS (AP) _ U, S. Secre- tary of State Dean Rusk politely reminded Charles de Gaulle and the rest of Western Europe on Sunday that the French presi- dent is conducting his go-it- alone policy behind a sturdy, reliable American shield. Without mentioning any names, the secretary made this point in a brier statement to newsmen on his arrival shortly after noon by special plane from Reykjavik, where Rusk and his top aides spent the night as guests of Iceland's foreign min- ister. Rusk is hero for a round of bilateral conversations with al- lied foreign ministers and the annual year-end ministerial ses- sion of the North Atlantic Trea-i ty Organization beginning Tues-! day morning. 'Secondary Matter' He dismissed De Gaulle's op position to an integrated NATO nuclear command as a "second- ary then stressed that the United States will "remain steady" in its full commitment to the security of the NATO area and in the "full insistence upon the rights and obligations which became ours as a resull of World War II." These rights' and obligations include protection of West Ber- lin, and a major voice in anj eventual all-German settlement as one of the chief victors in World War II. This also means the continued presence of a large and power- ful American army on West German soil an effective, nu- clear-powered shield between any possible Communist thrust and the rest of Western Europe. Admits 'Disarray' Rusk implicitly acknowledged some "disarray" in NATO ranks an apparent reference to De Gaulle's determination to build a completely national nu- clear deterrent and his refusal to participate in any integrated NATO nuclear force.' ''Gentlemen the; press sometimes write j about wh a t is called the 'disarray' of the secretary Without denying the existence of di- sarray, he continued: "Let me point out that the success of NA- TO in meeting its primary pur- pose apparently affords us the luxury of differing about sec- ondary matters." In other words, NATO's prin- cipal purpose is to protect West- ern Europe and North America from Communist aggression. This has been so successful that some NATO members now feel free to throw rocks at one an- other or at least go their own separate ways on certain mat- ters.
