The article highlights various issues on politics. The support of the U.S. administration for the intervention of the United Nations (UN) in Katanga Province, Congo is criticized. The use of force by UN in the Congo has been successful in its goal to subdue the mercenaries of politician Moise Tschombe. The improvement of the chances of the U.S. President to get increased authority to reform the U.S. tariff schedules and trade policies are the agreeable outcomes of the Common Market negotiations.
