  • Description

    ??? the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday (25 September) Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko called U.S. charges that the Soviet Union has combat troops in Cuba, false, and said the matter should be closed. However, at a town meeting in Queen's New York, President Jimmy Carter promised to spell out a decisive programme on the Cuban situation by next week.

    SYNOPSIS: In the General Assembly of the United Nations Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko called on the United States to admit the dispute over Soviet troops in Cuba was "based on falsehoods". He told the Assembly that the Soviet Union and other countries of the Socialist community have never threatened anybody, nor are they threatening anybody now.

    Mr. Gromyko pledged that the Soviets would unswervingly follow a policy of peaceful co-existence among states with different social systems. But, he said with the stepping-up of military preparations by some states, they were compelled to maintain their own security.

    He proposed that specific negotiations begin, to discuss the incessant production of weapons of mass destruction, with all nuclear powers participating. This would entail guarantees of security for non-nuclear states.
