The American Secretary of State, Dr. Henry Kissinger, told newsmen on Wednesday (13 February) that the Soviet author, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, would be welcome to live the United States.
Solzhenitsys, who was expelled form the Soviet Union on Wednesday, went to West Germany to stay with a fellow author and Nobel prize winner, Heinrich Boll. On Friday (15 February) he flew to Geneva, accompanied by his lawyers. The reason for this visit was not disclosed.
Natalya, Solzhenitsyn's wife, is still in Moscow. But Soviet authorities have said that she and her two sons will be allowed to join her husband in the West. It is not yet known where they will settle.
