  • Description

    Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Nikolai Firyubin, who arrived in New Delhi on Friday (22 October) heading a six-member delegation for what was officially described as annual bilateral discussions with Indian officials, met the Indian Foreign Minister Swaran Singh on Saturday (23 October) for talks.

    There is widespread speculation that the Soviet visit, made at short notice, is linked directly to the current increasing tension along the borders between Indian and Pakistan.

    It is Mr. Firyubin's second visit to India in only three weeks. He was there with President Podgorny earlier this month.
