    Background: Major Saleh Salem - "The Dancing Major" - editor-in-chief of the Egyptian Government newspaper 'Algomhouria', flew into Moscow Airport, Nov. 1. on a ten-day unofficial visit to the Soviet Union.

    During his stay, Major Salem is expected to interview USSR Premier, Nikita Khrushchev.

    Before flying to Russia, Major Salem had a meeting with President Nasser. Although his visit is of an unofficial nature, it is yet another sign of the improved atmosphere in U.A.R. - Soviet relations, which were strained earlier this year as a result of Soviet criticism of Nasser's measures against Communists in the United Arab Republic, and his condemnation of Communist manoeuvres in the Middle East.
