    Background: SOVIET PRESIDENT NIKOLAI PODGORNEY AND PRESIDENT NASSER HAD FINAL ROUND OF TALKS TODAY (FRIDAY) ON THE MIDDLE EAST SITUATION. PRESIDENT PODGORNEY IS DUE TO RETURN TO MOSCOW TOMORROW AFTER HIS THREE-DAY VISIT TO CAIRO.

    EARLIER IN THE WEEK A NEW 23-MAN CABINET -, WITH PRESIDENT NASSER AS PRIME MINISTER, WAS SWORN IN.

    ACCORDING TO AL AHRAM, THE AUTHORITATIVE CAIRO NEWSPAPER, PRESIDENT PODGORNEY HAD RECEIVED AN URGENT MESSAGE FROM MR. KOSYGIN IN NEW YORK SEEKING THE EGYPTIAN LEADER'S VIEWS ON "IMPORTANT ITEMS CONNECTED WITH DEVELOPMENTS IN THE CRISIS". THE NEWSPAPER DID NOT DIVULGE ANY FURTHER DETAILS OF THE MESSAGE, AND NO DETAILS OF THE TALKS BETWEEN THE TWO PRESIDENTS HAVE BEEN REVEALED OFFICIALLY.

    PRESIDENT NASSER'S NEW CABINET WAS SWORN IN ON TUESDAY. FOR THE FIRST TIME PRESIDENT NASSER ASSUMES THE PREMIERSHIP IN PLACE OF THE FORMER PRIME MINISTER MR. MOHAMMAD SEDKY SOLIMAN, WHO IS NOW ONE OF THE FOUR DEPUTY PRIME MINISTERS IN THE CABINET.

    AMONG THE FOUR NEW MINISTERS IS ABDEL MONEIM KAISSONY, AN ECONOMICS EXPERT WHO WAS DEPUTY PREMIER FOR FINANCIAL AFFAIRS UNTIL LAST SEPTEMBER. HE BECOMES MINISTER OF PLANNING.

    AL AHRAM SAID PRESIDENT NASSER'S DECISION TO TAKE OVER THE PREMIERSHIP WAS PART OF A "GENERAL OPERATION TO MOBILISE THE ENTIRE STATE AND PLACE IT IN A POSITION FROM WHICH IT COULD FACE THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE PRESENT CIRCUMSTANCES".
