The World

December 25, 1987

Defense Secretary Frank C. Carlucci announced he will soon go to the Persian Gulf to visit American naval forces and consult with allied nations in the region. Carlucci announced the trip during an interview on the the CBS program "Nightwatch." He did not say when the trip will be made, but a Pentagon official said it will take place "early in January." Carlucci, who replaced Caspar W. Weinberger as defense secretary last month, said a trip to the region is important "so I'm better equipped to advise the President."
