    Background: THE SOVIET PRIME MINISTER, MR. ALEXEI KOSYGIN, HAS ASSURED THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC IT CAN RELY ON SOVIET AID AND SUPPORT FOR ITS ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL PROGRESS. MR. KOSYGIN, WHO ARRIVED IN CAIRO YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) FOR AN EIGHT-DAY OFFICIAL VISIT, MADE THE PROMISE LAST NIGHT AT A BANQUET IN THE ABDIN PALACE GIVEN IN HIS HONOUR BY PRESIDENT GAMAL ABDEL NASSER OF THE U.A.R.

    MR. KOSYGIN, WHO WAS REPLYING TO A SPEECH BY PRESIDENT NASSER, SAID THAT REVOLUTIONARY CHANGES IN THE U.A.R. HAD BOLSTERED ITS REPUTATION IN THE WORLD AND MADE IT CONTRIBUTE GREATLY TOWARD THE STRUGGLE OF VARIOUS PEOPLES AGAINST COLONIALISM AND IMPERIALISM. "THE AGGRESSORS WHO MET THEIR DEFEAT IN EGYPT IN 1956 (THE SUEZ CAMPAIGN) WILL DEFINITELY MEET DEFEAT IN VIETNAM", MR. KOSYGIN SAID.

    PRESIDENT NASSER ALSO CONDEMNED WHAT HE CALLED AMERICAN AGGRESSION AGAINST NORTH VIETNAM AND ATTACKED ISRAEL AS A CONTINUOUS IMPERIALIST BASE OF AGGRESSION.

    HE PAID TRIBUTE TO SOVIET ATTEMPTS TO EASE INDO-PAKISTANI TENSION AND CRITICISED "THE USURPATION OF POWER IN RHODESIA BY A WHITE MINORITY", AS WELL AS THE ATTITUDE OF SOME AFRICAN STATES, WHICH HE DID NOT NAME, TOWARD THIS PROBLEM.
