  • Description

    The day before the announcement that Syria and Israel had reached agreement on the disengagement of their forces along the Golan Heights, Syria's President Hafez Al-Assad discussed the latest developments with the Soviet Foreign Minister, Mr. Andrei Gromyko.

    Mr. Gromyko had arrived in Damascus on Monday, just as the Untied States Secretary of State, Dr. Henry Kissinger, was returning to Israel. On Tuesday, Mr. Gromyko had a long meeting with the Syrian Deputy Premier, Mr. Abdel-Halem Khaddam, before meeting President Assad to discuss the latest Kissigner proposals for an agreement between both sides.

    Also present at the meeting were Mr. Khaddam, and the Soviet Ambassador in Damascus, Mr. Nouritdin Moukhitdinov. Syrian officials said later that the two leaders also discussed relations between their two countries.

    On his arrival in Damascus, Mr. Gromyko had said that Russia believed that a just peace and security in the Middle East could not be established except on the basis of full Israeli withdrawal from Arab territories, and the restoration of the national rights of the Palestinian Arab people.
