    Background: MR. ANDREI GROMYKO, THE SOVIET FOREIGN MINISTER, ARRIVED IN ROME, ITALY, TODAY (THURSDAY) FOR A SIX-DAY VISIT FOR TALKS WITH THE ITALIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. AMINTORE FANFANI, AND A PROBABLE AUDIENCE WITH POPE PAUL.

    MR. FANFANI WELCOMED MR. GROMYKO AND HIS WIFE WHEN THEIR PLANE LANDED AT ROME AIRPORT. THE SOVIET PARTY ALSO INCLUDED MR. GERMAN GVISHIANI, VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE STATE COMMITTEE FOR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY.

    TALKS BEGAN TODAY-AND THEY WILL LAST UNTIL SATURDAY - ON SUBJECTS INCLUDING EAST-WEST RELATIONS, DISARMAMENT, VIETNAM AND BILATERAL ISSUES SUCH AS THE BOOSTING OF ITALIAN-SOVIET TRADE.

    THE VATICAN HAS BEEN SILENT ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF A CALL MR. GROMYKO ON POPE PAUL. BUT, IT IS GENERALLY EXPECTED THAT HE WILL HAVE AN AUDIENCE ON SUNDAY OR MONDAY.

    HE WOULD BE THE FIRST COMMUNIST WOULD STATESMAN TO BE RECEIVED BY A POPE. HE IS ALSO THE FIRST SOVIET FOREIGN MINISTER TO VISIT ITALY.
