    THE FIRST DAY IN OSLO PROVED TO BE RELATIVELY QUITE, WITH A MEETING WITH KING OLAV, A DRIVE THROUGH THE CITY AND AN OFFICIAL BANQUET AS THE RUSSIAN VISITORS ONLY OFFICIAL ENGAGEMENTS.

    DURING THE VISIT MR. KHRUSHCHEV WILL HAVE FORMAL TALKS WITH NORWEGIAN GOVERNMENT LEADERS AND ACCORDING TO MR. HALVARD LANGE, NORWAY'S FOREIGN MINISTER, THE MAIN TOPICS TO BE DISCUSSED WILL BE TRADE AND CULTURAL EXCHANGES.
