  • Description

    A new Soviet ambassador has taken up his post in Cairo at a critical time in its relations with the United Arab Republic.

    The ambassador, Mr. Vladimir Vinogradov, was a Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister before being appointed to Cairo, reflecting the importance the Soviet Union attaches to the post.

    Mr. Vinogradov, presented his credentials to President Sadat at the Kubbeh Republican Palace on Thursday (October the 22nd). The former ambassador, Mr. Sergei Vonogradov, -- who was no relation -- died recently.

    The new ambassador will have the delicate task of ensuring that the relations between the two countries remain on the course steered by the late President Nasser who was Moscow's major ally in the Middle East.

    Mr. Vinogradov, who is 49, accompanied the Soviet Premier, Mr. Kosygin, when he went to Cairo for the funeral of President Nasser and talks with Egyptian leaders.

    Mr. Vinogradov was ambassador to Japan from 1962 to 1967 until his new appointment was one of the deputies to the foreign Minister, Mr. Andrei Gromyko.
