The committee heard testimony on the issues that are likely to be discussed in the London Economic Summit of the Industrialized Nations, to begin on July 15 in London. Of major concern in the economic summit will be the role of Mikhail Gorbachev, President of the Soviet Union, who appealed to the leaders of the seven participating nations to allow him to participate in economic meetings following the close of the actual summit. President Gorbachev was expected to appeal for aid in the Soviet Union’s political and economic transformation. Witnesses testified on how much aid is likely to be given to the Soviet Union by the industrialized nations, whether conditions should be placed on Soviet aid, and how much aid should be granted directly to Eastern European states formerly dominated by the Kremlin. Additional issues to be raised in the summit include international trade negotiations, the economic unification of Western Europe, and global environment concerns. close
