Bulganin reiterated opposition to a preparatory meeting of foreign ministers, but attempted to carry the US-Soviet exchange one step nearer a summit conference by emphasizing that there should be no difficulty in solving the procerlurni nroblems for such a meeting through diplomatic channels.

THE COMMUNIST BLOC USSR-Syria: The Soviet Union has informed Syria that it will soon announce that the terms of a Soviet- Syrian economic agreement, presumably that of Octo- ber 1957, have been improved to match the more favor- able terms extended by Moscow to the Egyptians, Syrian leaders who believed that Moscow initially opposed Egyp- tian-Syrian union may now interpret the Dromise as a Soviet endorsement of the union. USSR - Rapacki plan: Following five days of talks between Soviet Foreign Minister Gromyko and Polish For- eign Minister Rapacki in Moscow, the two governments an- nounced full Warsaw Pact approval of the Rapacki Plan, and a willingness to discuss an "effective system of controls" for a nuclear-free zone in central Europe. These discussions were probably a follow-up to the mid-January talks between Khrushchev and Gomulka. Khrushchev, in a London Times interview printed on the same day, stated that the USSR, "did not exclude the possibility" of supplementing the plan by an agreement on conventional troops in the areas con- cerned. The emphasis on control measures in the announce- ment is aimed at further stimulating Western interest. � Communist reaction to US earth satellite: The Sino- Soviet bloc countries have informed their people of the launching of the US earth satellite, but have pointed dis- paragingly to the differences in size between Explorer and Sputnik II. Official Soviet spokesmen have extended con- gratulations, while one Polish scientist in Warsaw asserted that the American achievement is "far more important" than the two Russian Sputniks. 11 TOP SECRET pproved for Release: 2019/08/20
