    Background: There are now two Soviet ships in the harbour of Malta. The "Muehck", the first Soviet ship to use the dry dock facilities under the new Soviet-Maltese agreement, has now been joined by a Soviet training ship, the "Tovarishch".

    The agreement for Soviet shipping to use the Maltese dock facilities was reached after the visit to Malta in August by the Soviet Ambassador, Mr Mikhail Smirnovsky.

    SYNOPSIS: The Soviet training ship "Tovarishch" is now in port in Malta. It is the second Soviet ship to dock on the island since the agreement for Soviet shipping to use the Maltese dock facilities was reached in August. Mr Mikhail Smirnovsky, Soviet Ambassador in London, arranged the facilities during his visit last August.

    The first Soviet ship to use the facilities, the "Muehck", entered the harbour on October the Second for a refit and repairs.

    The Soviet ships have meant more money for maltese shopowners as the sailors seek recreation. Slowly, the position of Malta since Mr Mintoff decided to pursue better terms is getting better.
