  • Description

    PRESIDENT NASSER OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC TODAY (WEDNESDAY) DISCUSSED THE MIDDLE EAST SITUATION WITH SOVIET FOREIGN MINISTER ANDREI GROMYKO, WHO ARRIVED AT SHORT NOTICE YESTERDAY FOR URGENT CONSULTATIONS WITH EGYPTIAN OFFICIALS.

    A BRIEF ANNOUNCEMENT AFTER A THREE-HOUR MEETING HELD IN PRESIDENT NASSER'S HOME AT MANSHIET EL BAKRI OUTSIDE CAIRO SAID ONLY THAT THE DISCUSSIONS WERE ATTENDED BY TOP ADVISERS.

    THE EGYPTIAN TEAM INCLUDED DR. MAHMOUD FAWZY, PRESIDENT NASSER'S PERSONAL ADVISER ON FOREIGN AFFAIRS, FOREIGN MINISTER MAHMOUD RIAD AND THE EGYPTIAN AMBASSADOR IN MOSCOW, DR. MOURAND GHALED.

    MR. GROMYKO WAS ACCOMPANIED AT THE TALKS BY THE SOVIET DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. VLADIMIR SIMEONOV, AND FOUR OTHER OFFICIALS OF THE SOVIET FOREIGN MINISTRY.

    SHORTLY AFTER HIS ARRIVAL LAST NIGHT, MR. GROMYKO STARTED TALKS WITH MR. RIAD. LATER, MR. RIAD SAID THE SOVIET FOREIGN MINISTER HAD INFORMED EGYPT OF THE CURRENT STATE OF THE FOUR-POWER TALKS IN NEW YORK. THE FOUR POWERS - RUSSIA, AMERICA, FRANCE AND BRITAIN - ARE TRYING TO HAMMER OUT BROAD GUIDELINES FOR BREAKING THE TWO-YEAR OLD MIDDLE EAST DEADLOCK.

    ATTEMPTS AT A PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT ARE STILL BAULKED BECAUSE OF ISRAEL'S INSISTENCE ON DIRECT NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE ARABS AND PRESIDENT NASSER'S REFUSAL TO ACCEPT THIS.

    IN NEW YORK TODAY, THE FOUR POWERS HELD THEIR 12TH SESSION OF TALKS BUT STILL WITHELD THE EXPECTED PROGRESS REPORT. INFORMED DIPLOMATIC SOURCES SAID NO MAJOR MOVE WOULD NOW BE MADE BEFORE MR. GROMYKO ENDS HIS CAIRO MISSION.
