  • Description

    ACTING UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY-GENERAL U THANT INVITED SOVIET FIRST DEPUTY PREMIER ANASTAS I. MIKOYAN AND UNITED STATES AMBASSADOR TO THE U-N, ADLAI STEVENSON, TO DINNER MONDAY NIGHT (26 NOVEMBER). OTHER U-S AND SOVIET OFFICIALS ATTENDED THE AFFAIR JUST HOURS AFTER MIKOYAN'S ARRIVAL IN NEW YORK CITY...FOLLOWING A 24-DAY VISIT TO CUBA.

    THE DINNER WAS HELD AT THE UNITED NATIONS SECRETARIAT BUILDING...THE TALL GLASS STRUCTURE ADJACENT TO THE GLOBE-LIKE U-N GENERAL ASSEMBLY BUILDING. ALTHOUGH UNSETTLED ISSUES IN THE CUBAN CRISIS WERE DISCUSSED...THE EMPHASIS WAS APPARENTLY ON A PLEASANT EVENING, GOOD FOOD AND A FRIENDLY EXCHANGE OF VIEWS.

    TWO PRINCIPAL POINTS WERE RAISED BY U-S OFFICIALS AT THE DINNER. ONE IS INTERNATIONAL VERIFICATION OF THE REMOVAL OF OFFENSIVE WEAPONS FROM CUBA. THE OTHER METHODS OF PREVENTING NEW OFFENSIVE ARMS FROM BEING SHIPPED TO CUBA.

    AFTER THE DINNER ENDED AT 10:30 P.M....THE MOOD OF THE PRINCIPALS, EXCLUDING U THANT...WAS ONE MORE OF CHEERFUL BANTER THAN OF SERIOUS DIPLOMATIC DISCUSSION.
