    Background: THE SOVIET UNION AND THE CYPRUS GOVERNMENT TODAY (SATURDAY) SIGNED AN AIR TRAFFIC AGREEMENT IN NICOSIA, PROVIDING FOR A CIVIL AIR LINK BETWEEN MOSCOW AND THE CYPRUS CAPITAL.

    THE AGREEMENT FOLLOWED THE ARRIVAL IN NICOSIA YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) OF A SOVIET ILYUSHIN TURBO-PROP AIRLINER BELONGING TO THE RUSSIAN STATE AIRLINE AEROFLOT. THE PLANE - FIRST RUSSIAN AIRLINER TO LAND IN CYPRUS - WAS MET BY MORE THAN A THOUSAND PEOPLE, INCLUDING THE RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR AND THE LEADER OF THE RUSSIAN DELEGATION TO THE TALKS WITH THE CYPRUS GOVERNMENT. THEY GAVE THE CREW A VERY WARM RECEPTION.

    REPORTS SAY THE RECEPTION WAS ORGANISED BY AKEL, THE 40,000-STRONG COMMUNIST MOVEMENT ON THE ISLAND - A MEMBERSHIP WHICH TOTALS ABOUT 7 PER CENT OF THE POPULATION. THE ILYUSHIN WAS ON A ROUTE-PROVING FLIGHT FROM DAMASCUS. THE SERVICE IS EXPECTED TO BE ONCE WEEKLY FROM MOSCOW TO NICOSIA, DAMASCUS AND BACK. THE FIRST AIRLINER IS EXPECTED IN NICOSIA NEXT THURSDAY.
