  • Description

    RUSSIA'S PERMANENT UNITED NATIONS REPRESENTATIVE MR VALERIAN ZORIN, HAS BEEN RELIEVED OF HIS POST. ANNOUNCING THIS LAST NIGHT (SATURDAY) THE RUSSIAN NEWS AGENCY, TASS, SAID THE SOVIET COUNCIL OF MINISTERS HAS APPOINTED MR NIKOLAI FEDORENKO IN HIS PLACE. MR. FEDORENKO ALSO TALKS OVER MR ZORIN'S POST AS REPRESENTATIVE IN THE SECURITY COUNCIL.

    MOST RECENT FILM OF MR ZORIN WAS TAKEN LAST FRIDAY AT THE UNITED NATIONS, NEW YORK. AT A NEWS CONFERENCE HE WAS ASKED (SOF) THE VIEWS OF THE SOVIET GOVERNMENT ON THE SENDING OF AN AMERICAN MILITARY MISSION TO THE CONGO.

    MR ZORIN REPLIED THAT SUCH ACTIVITIES BY THE US INDUBITABLY CAST SOME DOUBT. HE THOUGHT AMERICA APPEARED TO BE "ON THE ROAD TO DIRECT SUBVERSION OF GENERALLY ACCEPTED UN PRINCIPLES".

    EARLIER VISNEWS FILM, TAKEN IN OCTOBER, SHOWS MR ZORIN ARRIVING AT THE UNITED NATIONS DURING THE CUBAN CRISIS. MR ZORIN AND MR ADLAI STEVENSON, AMERICA'S UN AMBASSADOR, HELD DAILY TALKS DURING THAT TIME WITH U THANT, THE UN SECRETARY-GENERAL.

    LAST NIGHT'S TASS ANNOUNCEMENT MADE NO IMMEDIATE REFERENCE TO A NEW POST FOR MR ZORIN, WHO FIRST WENT TO THE UNITED STATES IN 1960. HE HAS ALSO REPRESENTED RUSSIA AT THE DISARMAMENT CONFERENCE IN GENEVA.

    A DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER SINCE 1947, MR ZORIN HEADED THE SOVIET GENEVA DELEGATION FOR A TIME THIS YEAR, BUT WAS REPLACED LAST AUGUST BY MR VASILI KUZNETSOV, RUSSIAN FIRST DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER. MR ZORIN WAS AWARDED THE ORDER OF LENIN FOR DIPLOMATIC SERVICES AND TO MARK HIS 60TH BIRTHDAY IN JANUARY.
