Shevardnadze to Visit Britain on July 14

From Reuters

Britain announced Wednesday that Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard A. Shevardnadze will visit here next month and said that it still believes it could do business with the Kremlin leadership under Mikhail S. Gorbachev.

"It is our belief that the Soviet Union is now seeking seriously to join the United States in search for (disarmament) agreement," Foreign Secretary Geoffrey Howe told Parliament.

"Certainly it makes sense to proceed on that assumption. That is what we mean when we say we can do business with Gorbachev."
