  • Description

    MILITARY AID FROM THE SOVIET UNION BEGAN ARRIVING IN CYPRUS YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) WITH THE ARRIVAL OF MILITARY LORRIES AND TRACTORS UNLOADED IN THE PORT OF FAMAGUSTA, IN EASTERN CYPRUS. THEY ARRIVED ON THE "NIKOLAI BOURDENKO", FIRST RUSSIAN SHIP TO DISCHARGE CARGO IN CYPRUS SINCE THE SIGNING OF A SOVIET-CYPRUS AID AGREEMENT IN MOSCOW ABOUT SEVEN WEEKS AGO.

    MILITARY VEHICLES BROUGHT ON THE "NIKOLAI BOURDENKO" NUMBER ABOUT 120, OF WHICH ABOUT 60 HAD BEEN UNLOADED BY WEDNESDAY NIGHT, ALONG WITH A TRACTOR AND 50 GAS CYLINDERS. DETAILS OF THE AID THAT THE SOVIET UNION IS GIVING THE CYPRUS GOVERNMENT HAVE NOT BEEN RELEASED.

    (PRESIDENT MAKARAIOS OF CYPRUS SAID EARLIER THIS MONTH THAT THE MILITARY AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE SOVIET UNION AND CYPRUS WAS "A PURELY COMMERCIAL TRANSACTION". HE ADDED THAT NO POLITICAL AGREEMENT WHATEVER HAD BEEN SIGNED BY THE TWO COUNTRIES.)
