    Background: Two separate delegations from Communist countries arrived in Syria on May 25. A Soviet group led by senior Kremlin leaders and Romania's President Nicolae Ceaucescu flew into Damascus for talk on the Middle East. The Soviet team, led by first Deputy Prime Minister Ivan Arkhipov, was on a three-day visit. Mr. Arkhipov Khaddam and chief of the armed forces, Major General Hikmat Shehabi. Syria's official news agency said they discussed new developments in the Middle East but gave no details. In a separate visit, Romania's President Ceaucescu had lengthy talks with Syrian President Hafez al-Assad. Afterwards the two leaders issued a joint statement calling for an immediate and unconditional withdrawal of Israel from Arab-occupied territory. Romania is the only Eastern-bloc country with relations with Israel. President Ceaucescu said a just peace could be attained by an international conference under United Nations supervision. Syria has not committed itself to this idea, which was proposed by Moscow last year as a counter to the American-sponsored Camp David accords.
