  • Description

    SOVIET PRESIDENT NIKOLAI PODGORNY YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) VISITED THE PYRAMIDS IN CAIRO, AT THE END OF THREE DAYS OF TALKS WITH PRESIDENT NASSER AND U.A.R. OFFICIALS. IN OTHER PARTS OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, REFUGEES CONTINUE TO BE A SEVERE PROBLEM. IN RECENT DAYS THEY HAVE BEEN STREAMING ACROSS THE SUEZ CANAL AND OUT OF THE ISRAELI-HELD EL KANTARA AREA IN THEIR THOUSANDS.

    MR. PODGORNY WAS TAKEN ON HIS SIGHT-SEEING TOUR OF THE PYRAMIDS BY THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, ALI SABRY. THE SOVIET LEADER CONCLUDED HIS TALKS THIS MORNING, AND LEFT BY AIR FOR MOSCOW. IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT MR. PODGORNY VISITED CAIRO AT THE SPECIAL REQUEST OF PREMIER KOSYGIN, TO SOUND OUT PRESIDENT NASSER ON HIS VIEWS OF THE MIDDLE EAST CRISIS.

    IN THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC ITSELF, MEANWHILE, REFUGEES CONTINUE TO BE THE MAIN "POST-WAR" PROBLEM.

    IN THE UNITED NATIONS EGYPT AND JORDAN HAVE BOTH MAINTAINED THAT THE REFUGEES HAVE BEEN FORCED TO LEAVE ISRAELI-HELD TERRITORY.

    THE EGYPTIAN REPRESENTATIVE AT THE U.N. HAS ACCUSED ISRAEL OF EXPELLING PALESTINIANS FROM THE EL KANTARA AREA OF THE SINAI DESERT AT THE RATE OF 1,000 A DAY.

    THE UNITED NATIONS RELIEF AND WORKS AGENCY AND THE INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS HAVE BEEN WORKING TO HELP THE REFUGEES.

    THE SUEZ CANAL ITSELF IS BLOCKED BY A SUNKEN DREDGE. THE DREDGE WAS FORMERLY USED FOR WIDENING THE CANAL, PART OF A GENERAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME UNDER WAY BEFORE THE OUTBREAK OF WAR.
