  • Description

    PAKISTANI PRIME MINISTER ZULFIKAR ALI BHUTTO ON THURSDAY (24 OCTOBER) MET WITH SOVIET PREMIER ALEXEI KOSYGIN IN THE KREMLIN FOR TALKS AIMED AT SURYING PAST ANTAGONISMS.

    MR. BHUTTO MADE A BRIEF, TWO-DAY VISIT TO THE SOVIET UNION. OBSERVERS SAID HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN SEEKING SOVIET HELP IN GETTING AFGHANISTAN TO MODERATE ITS DEMAND FOR THE CREATION OF AN INDEPENDENT STATE FROM THE TROUBLED PAKISTANI PROVINCES NEAR THE AFGHANISTAN BORDER.

    THE TALKS BETWEEN MR. BHUTTO AND MR. KOSYGIN ARE UNDERSTOOD TO HAVE CENTRED ON THE COMPLEX NETWORK OF RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PAKISTAN, INDIA, BANGLADESH AND AFGHANISTAN.

    MR. KOSYGIN MADE IT CLEAR LATER THAT THE SOVIET UNION WAS TRYING TO MAINTAIN FRIENDLY TIES WITH ALL FOUR COUNTRIES AT THE SAME TIME.

    ON THE PAKISTAN-AFGHANISTAN DISPUTE, MR. KOSYGIN SAID HE THOUGHT BOTH SIDES WANTED TO ACHIEVE A BETTER MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING AND BRING CLOSER THEIR POSITIONS ON A WIDE RANGE OF PROBLEMS.

    MR. BHUTTO LEFT MOSCOW ON SATURDAY (26 OCTOBER) FOR TEHERAN.
