  • Description

    A three-day Anglo-Soviet conference on coexistence opened at Wiston House, Stoyning, Sussex, Feb 24.

    Organised by the Great Britain-USSR Association, the conference is attended by about 30 leading pressmen, professors and politicians from both countries, with Sir William Hayter, former British Ambassador to Moscow, in the chair. Alexei Surkov, secretary of the Soviet Writers' Union, leads the Russian delegation. The aim of the meetings is to discuss ways and means of achieving peaceful coexistence between Britain and the Soviet Union.

    At the first meeting, the Editor in Chief of "Izvestia", Mr Adjubei, complained that the luggage of a party of Russian students had been searched in a London hotel earlier this week. Mr Adjubei -who is Premier Khrushchev's son-in-law - asked: "Is this the way Great Britain works for peaceful coexistence?" Earlier, Sir William Hayter rebuked Victor Maevsky, an editor of "Pravda", for a denunciation of Dag Hammarskjoeld, the United Nations Secretary-General.
