  • Description

    The Soviet Union and Mexico settled the details of a three year trade agreement during the State Visit to the Soviet Union of Mexican President Luis Echeverria.

    President Echeverria arrived in Moscow on April 12 (Thursday) to begin the week long visit. Soon after his arrival from Paris, President Echeverria met the Soviet leaders, Leonid Brezhnev, Alexei Kosygin and Nikolai Podgorny for talks.

    The first trade agreement between the two countries provides for the delivery of Soviet capital goods with deferred payment by Mexico. The Soviet Union has also offered to build industrial plants in Mexico and to accept payment in goods produced.

    The Mexican President also asked the Soviet Union to assist in making Latin American a nuclear-free zone. President Echeverria said the structure of world peace should not be settled "by secret agreements between great powers, in a race for dominance and in the establishment of new zones of influence".

    In a speech at a Kremlin banquet, the Mexican leader said that arms limitation agreements between Moscow and Washington should not result in the substitution of one type of weapon by other even more destructive.

    He thanked the Soviet Union for supporting Mexico's project of charter of economic rights and duties of nations.

    The Mexican President and his wife visited Leningrad last week and are scheduled to go on to the Siberian City of Irkutsk before flying on to Peking for a visit to the People's Republic of China.
