Khrushchev rushed home to welcome President Sukarno of Indonesia, a neutralist Asian leader whose government has contracted for more than 5300 million .worth of Soviet military- aid. Khrushchev told the Viennese in a farewell statement lie hoped ' his talks with Kennedy would lead I to peace, understanding and cooperation between the United States and tbe ^Soviet At * Vienna,* 4 the stuck to the hard lines of his anti- Western policy. But U.S. officials hope that, as a result of tne Vienna conference, he may yet modify his course- Kennedy - is reported _to -• have told Khrushchev^ „ emphatically that if he forces a showdown over West Berlin,- the .Western powers will defend the city."' Xhrushchev was warned against -miscalculating Western intentions. Broadly, the U.S. President sought to get across the idea ifc*t, despite setbacks * in Laos and Cuba, the United Slates intends to fulfill its defense commitments to other nations around the world. Today in London, - President Kennedy-.and Macmillan -spent nearly three hours mapping Western strategy in the East-West cold war. They dispensed wilh all advisers and officials for most of their session- It took place in an austere study in Admiralty House.
