  • Description

    AN ADVANCE PARTY OF 30 SWEDISH OFFICERS AND MEN LEFT STOCKHOLM BY AIR TODAY (FRIDAY) FOR CYPRUS WHERE THEY WILL JOIN THE UNITED NATIONS PEACEKEEPING FORCE. THE REST OF THE SWEDISH FORCE OF NEARLY 700 MEN WILL BE LEAVING FOR THE ISLAND EARLY NEXT WEEK.

    THE U.N. FORCE'S PERIOD HAS BEEN SET FOR THREE MONTHS THERE. THE FINNISH MEDIATOR HOWEVER SAYS HIS TASK WILL BE LONG DIFFICULT. AN EXTENSION OF THE PERIOD WOULD SEEM LIKELY. (THE U.N. IS IN ITS FOURTH YEAR IN THE CONGO AND IN ITS SECOND YEAR IN THE YEMEN.)
    (IN DENVER COLORADO TODAY, U THANT SAID THERE HAD GREAT BEEN DIFFICULTIES IN ESTABLISHING THE INTERNATIONAL FORCE IN CYPRUS. BUT FAILURE TO HAVE DONE SO, HE SAID, COULD WELL HAVE MEANT WAR IN THE MEDITERRANEAN.)
