  • Description

    The United States
    government announced September 11,th that for reasons of security, Soviet
    Premier Khruschev, Hungerian party Secretary Kadar, and General Shehu of
    Albania, would not be allowed to leave the confines of Manhatten island - the 12
    mile long central borough of New York - when they attend the 20th September
    meeting of the United Nations General Assembly.

    As the liner "Baltika" - carrying Mr Khruschev, Mr Kadar, Polish Premier Gomulka
    , General Shehu and Georghiu Dej, Romanian Party Secretary - steamed towards the
    United States, September 14th, U.S Secretary of State Herter announced that
    Cuban Premier Fidel Castro would also be restricted on the island.

    In this step, unprecedented over such important visitors, the United States have
    now confined the delegations of Russia, Hungary, Cuba and Albania to Manhatten
    Island. The Soviet government has made an angfry protest to America over this
    "unfriendly act".But Mr Hagerty, White House Press Secretary , commenting on the
    criticisms, said : "This is solely a matter of security ", He said it was an
    American responsibility to provide protection for Mr Khruschev so that he could
    do anything directly related to his duties at the United Nations , and that was
    all.

    New York police and State department security officials were becoming
    increasingly concerned over the size and nature of demonstrations being rapidly
    organised by groups hostile to Premier Khruschev.

    These are planned for the moment he steps on to American soil.

    It was also thought that a large number of militant Hungarian refugees might
    demonstrate against Mr Kadar, and might be tempted to do him violence.

    Mr Herter said September 14, that the question of whether the United Arab
    Republic (UAR) 's President Nasser and Yugoslavia's Marshall Tito would be
    confined to New York city was also under consideration.
