  • Description

    SOVIET PRIME MINISTER KHRUSHCHEV, SEEKING RE-ELECTION THIS WEEKEND TO THE SUPREME SOVIET, ADDRESSED 6,000 OF HIS CONSTITUENTS IN MOSCOW THIS AFTERNOON (WEDNESDAY).

    IN HIS 90-MINUTE SPEECH (RUSSIAN SOF), MR.KHRUSHCHEV AGAIN VISUALISED A BERLIN UNDER A UNITED NATIONS FLAG, WITH UNCHANGED FRONTIERS, AND AT THE CENTRE OF "A HEALTHIER POLITICAL CLIMATE IN EUROPE".(THE STATE DEPARTMENT IN WASHINGTON SAID TONIGHT THAT AMERICA AND RUSSIA WOULD PROBABLY SOON RESUME "EXPLORATORY TALKS" ON THE BERLIN PROBLEM AT DIPLOMATIC LEVEL.THE LAST TALKS WERE BROKEN OFF AS A RESULT OF OCTOBER'S CUBAN CRISIS.)
    ONE EFFECT OF MR.KHRUSHCHEV'S SPEECH WAS TO KNOCK DOWN WESTERN HOPES OF A QUICK AGREEMENT ON A NUCLEAR TEST BAN.HE WAS NOT PREPARED TO INCREASE HIS CONCESSION OF TWO TO THREE "ON-SITE" INSPECTIONS A YEAR.BY WANTING MORE, THE WEST MERELY SOUGHT TO SPY ON SOVIET TERRITORY.

    PEACEFUL CO-EXISTENCE AND INTERNATIONAL NEGOTIATION, SAID MR.KHRUSHCHEV, WAS STILL THE ONLY REASONABLE POLICY FOR THE BACKED UP BY SOVIET DEFENSIVE MIGHT.AND IF CUBA, CHINA, EAST GERMANY OR ANY OTHER SOCIALIST COUNTRY WERE ATTACKED, THE SOVIET UNION WOULD REPLY WITH A SHATTERING BLOW UPON THE AGGRESSORS.
