Early Andropov meeting unlikely, US official says

A summit meeting between President Reagan and Soviet leader Yuri Andropov is not likely in the near future, said Undersecretary of State Lawrence S. Eagleburger. ''You should not count on it soon,'' he said at a conference of the American Stock Exchange.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Charles H. Percy (R) of Illinois also attended the meeting, where he repeated his call for a US-Soviet summit this year. Mr. Eagleburger said Mr. Reagan has indicated he would go to a summit when there was some chance of success and after careful preparation.
