  • Description

    ???Moscow's Vnukovo Airport was decked out as if for a holiday on a fine spring day, to receive an official delegation from the Polish government and United Workers' Party.

    The plane bringing in the guests was escorted through a cloudless sky by fighter aircrafts.

    The Polish officials were invited to the Soviet Union by the government and the Central Committee of the Communist Party.

    There to welcome the guests were Soviet top officials Khrushchov, Brejnev, Kirilenko, Kosygin, Mikoyan, Rodgerny, Polyansky, Suslov, Grishin, Yefremov, Demichev, Ilyichev, Polyakov, Ponomaryov, Titov, and Shelepin.

    The visiting group is headed by Wladislaw Gomulka, outstanding political leader and statesman, and a leader of the world communist and working class movement, and by the eminent statesman, Yusef Cyrankiewicz.

    In the Polish group are party leaders Zenon Klishko, Stefen Jendrikhovsky, and Adam Rapatsky.

    The Soviet and Polish national anthems were played, followed by the salute of the nations, and a report by the commander of the guard of honour.

    Mr. Gomulka, Party First Secretary, and Prime Minister Cyrankiewicz were greeted by men of the Moscow garrison.

    These men represent the Soviet Army, which together with Polish forces liberated Poland from the fascist invaders during the second world war.

    Among the officials receiving the guests were Ministers, chief of government committees, Army Marshals, ... and the Diplomatic Corps.

    Soviet-Polish friendship has been found to be strong and indivisible. It is believed the visit just began will promote closer ties between the two countries.

    Mr. Khrushchov, and Mr. Gomulka exchanged speeches at the airport.

    The hosts and the visitors set out for the heart of town, ... followed by enthusiastic expressions of welcome.
