  • Description

    Russian Deputy Prime Minister Mikoyan, after his U.S. tour earlier this year, opened in Mexico City, Nov 22, a Russian Trade Fair during his ten-day Mexican tour. With him was President Lopez Mateos, Education Minister Jaime Torres Bodet, Soviet Ambassador Vladimir Bazikin and Public Relations Minister Manuel Tello.

    Mexican and Russian flags decorated the exhibition and a large crowd attended the inauguration ceremony. Later Mr. Mikoyan and the President drank together to a "humanity free of war."
    The Fair includes Russian trucks, cars, carpets, mink coats, furs, machines and a number of models ranging from Lunik III to Moscow Airport and a thermo-nuclear laboratory.

    The Fair, the latest of its kind outside the Soviet Union's allies, is aimed at developing economic and cultural ties with non-committed nations.

    While Mr. Mikoyan celebrated his 64th birthday on the tour, reliable unofficial reports hinted the USSR offered to build in Mexico a fully-equipped petro-chemical city.
