Two Communist leaders of different hues, Russia's Premier Khrushchev and Yugoslavia's President Tito, met in New York, Sept 28. It was a significant encounter due to the cold relations that has existed between the two countries in recent years. At the end of talks Mr. Khrushchev said "Our viewpoints are very close on all we discussed".
Questioned outside the offices of the Soviet delegation - where the meeting took place-the Russian leader said they had talked about disarmament, the Congo and measures for safeguarding peace. Asked if their ideological differences had been resolved the Russian Premier indicated these had not been mentioned.
Earlier President Tito had talks with British Premier Harold Macmillan, who is due to address the General Assembly, Sept 29. It was announced that Prime Minister Macmillan will meet Mr. Khrushchev soon after the British leader makes his speech in the General Assembly. It is thought the British Premier will try and find some basis for agreement between East and West.
