  • Description

    Turkey and the Soviet Union have signed agreements in Moscow on preventing civil aircraft hi-jacking and to expand economic, scientific and technical cooperation.

    SYNOPSIS: The agreements were the result of two days of talks between the Russian Foreign Minister, Mr Andrei Gromyko, and the Turkish Foreign Minister, Mr Ihsan Sabri Caglayangil, who had arrived in Moscow on Sunday (13 March). Both men signed the agreements at an official ceremony in the Foreign Ministry building in the Kremlin on Tuesday (15 March). Full details were not made immediately available.

    The hi-jacking agreement is understood to provide for the return of planes and people involved in such incidents, including the hi-jackers.

    The agreement on cooperation is believed to provide for Soviet credits worth more than one thousand million dollars for Turkish industrial expansion. The two countries reached a preliminary understanding on a possible Turkish-Soviet friendship treaty in 1975. The treaty has been delayed because of differences over the wording. The Turks were understood to regard the original Soviet draft as too close to a non-aggression pact.
