  • Description

    THE CHINESE CHARGE D'AFFAIRES AND HIS AIDES WALKED OUT WHEN THE SOVIET DEFENCE MINISTER, MARSHAL RODION MALINOVSKY, SPEAKING FROM THE TOP OF LENIN'S TOMB IN MOSCOW'S RED SQUARE, CRITICISED THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC DURING CELEBRATIONS TODAY (MONDAY) MARKING THE 49TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION. THE DEFENCE MINISTER SPOKE JUST BEFORE DOZENS OF MISSILES, TANKS AND OTHER WEAPONS WERE DRIVEN ACROSS THE SQUARE IN THE ANNUAL PARADE, REVIEWED BY THE COMMUNIST PARTY LEADER, MR BREZHNEV, THE PRIME MINISTER, MR KOSYGIN, AND OTHER TOP SOVIET LEADERS.

    TODAY'S CHINESE WALK-OUT CAME AS MARSHAL MALINOVSKY ACCUSED THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF "ENCOURAGING THE AMERICANS TO COMMIT NEW CRIMES IN VIETNAM". HE SAID IT WAS "A MATTER OF REGRET THAT THE LEADERS OF THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC COME OUT AGAINST THE UNITED OF ACTION OF SOCIALIST COUNTRIES IN SUPPORTING THE VIETNAMESE PEOPLE". A TELEVISION BROADCAST OF THE PARADE WAS SENT VIA RUSSIA'S MOLNIA-I COMMUNICATIONS SATELLITE TO THE SOVIET FAR EAST AND THENCE TO BULGARIA, POLAND, CZECHOSLOVAKIA, YUGOSLAVIA, AUSTRIA AND EAST AND WEST GERMANY.

    THE PARADE INCLUDED GIANT ANTI-MISSILE ROCKETS, SUBMARINE-BORNE BALLISTIC MISSILES, AND INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILES. OBSERVERS SAID THEY SAW NO NEW MISSILES. TASS, THE OFFICIAL SOVIET NEWS AGENCY, DESCRIBED TWO GIANT ORBITAL MISSILES AS "INVULNERABLE TO ENEMY DEFENCES", AND SAID THE GIANT ANTI-MISSILE ROCKETS DISPLAYED COULD "ANNIHILATE THE BALLISTIC MISSILES OF THE AGGRESSOR, NOTWITHSTANDING WEATHER AND RADIO INTERFERENCE".
