  • Description

    THE SOVIET PRIME MINISTER, MR KOSYGIN, COMPLETED THE SECOND DAY OF HIS FOUR DAY OFFICIAL VISIT TO SWEDEN TODAY (FRIDAY), DURING WHICH HE HAD LUNCH WITH KING GUSTAF ADOLF. WHEN THE SOVIET PREMIER ARRIVED IN STOCKHOLM BY AIR YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) THERE WERE MINOR DEMONSTRATIONS.

    A GOVERNMENT DELEGATION LED BY THE PRIME MINISTER, MR TAGE ERLANDER, WAS WAITING FOR MR KOSYGIN, WHOSE PLANE WAS LATE. BUT THERE WERE ALSO SMALL GROUPS OF YOUNG PEOPLE HOLDING PLACARDS SAYING "DICTATORS NOT WELCOME". THERE WAS NO TROUBLE AT THE AIRPORT ALTHOUGH THERE WERE SCUFFLES LATER IN THE DAY. POLICE REMOVED A YOUTH WITH AN ANTI-SOVIET PLACARD SHORTLY BEFORE MR KOSYGIN LEFT A GOVERNMENT OFFICE WHERE HE HAD PAID A COURTESY CALL ON MR ERLANDER. SEVERAL YOUTH AND ANTI-COMMUNIST ORGANISATIONS HAVE ANNOUNCED PLANS FOR "ACTIONS AND DEMONSTRATIONS" DURING THE VISIT.

    TODAY (FRIDAY) MR KOSYGIN WENT TO SOUTH SWEDEN WHERE HE HAD LUNCH WITH KING GUSTAF ADOLF. AFTER LUNCH, THE KING PRESENTED HIS GUEST WITH A ROYAL PORTRAIT. THE SOVIET PARTY INCLUDED MR KOSYGIN'S DAUGHTER, LUDMILA, WHO IS ACCOMPANYING HER FATHER ON THE SWEDISH TRIP. AFTERWARDS MR KOSYGIN JOINED MR ERLANDER AT HIS SUMMER RESIDENCE FOR A ROUND OF TALKS. THERE WAS NO OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT ON THEIR NATURE BUT THEY ARE THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN ON TOPICS OF COMMERCIAL AND SCIENTIFIC COOPERATION.
