  • Description

    Malta Harbour, once only used by ships from NATO nations under a 1964 defence agreement between Malta and Britain, may soon be visited by vessels from the Soviet Union and Mediterranean nations. The Maltese Government under Prime Minister Dom Mintoff, has said that the Defence agreement is no longer workable and the harbour will be open for refitting and repairs to any vessel. Until the situation is finally worked out, Mr. Mintoff has told the United States that its ships cannot enter Malta Harbour. Yesterday, three Libyan vessels tied up in Malta. As if to add weight to its stand, the Libyan vessels were moored at the NATO dock.
