    Palestine Liberation Organisaiton leader Yasser Arafat and a delegation of high-ranking Palestinians met Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin in the Kremlin on Wednesday (27 November).

    Said Arafat and his colleagues had arrived in the Soviet Union on Monday (25 November) for a series of discussions with Soviet leaders.

    The main topic of these talks was to clarify the U.S.S.R.'s position in the Middle East following the P.L.O's recent diplomatic successes at the Arab Rabat Summit and the address to the Untied Nations' General Assembly by the P.L.O. leader.

    No concrete results -- or changes in Soviet policy -- have yet been reported as a result of these meetings. But Mr. Kosygin said the welcomed the growing recognition won by the P.L.O.

    The Soviet news agency Tass said the leaders had discussed a solution to the Palestine problem within the framework of a Middle East settlement on the basis of ensuring the legitimate rights of the Palestinians to self-determination and national sovereignty.

    Said Arafat and his delegation are scheduled to go on to Belgrade on Friday (29 November) for talks with Yugoslavian officials.
