Rapped By Nasser, Khrushchev Loan Assures Egypt Backing CAIRO (AP) Premier Khrushchev granted Egypt a huge new Soviet loan Sunday and in return got the signature of Egyptian President Nasser on a joint communique extend- ing all-out support to Soviet foreign policy. Nasser told an enthusiastic crowd at a farewell banquet that the loan was for mil- lion 232 million rubles. Immediately afterwards the two leaders issued a bristling anti imperialist communique Which, in effect, condemned American policy all around the globe. Nasser announced the Soviet credit of 252 million rubles at a lavish banquet given in his hon- or by Khrushchev. Five-Year Plan The Soviet loan would finance roughly 10 per cent of Egypt's second five-year plan starting in 3965. Although terms of the loan were not announced, it would presumably be for 12 years at 2.5 per cent interest as have been the previous million in Soviet credits extend- ed (o Egypt. In return, Nasser went right down the line with Soviet and Soviet Communist party policy. proclaimed the "Legiti- mate right of the Cuban people to defend their sovereignty" after, as the formal communi- que said, Khrushchev denounced American overnights to him and 'most those Cuero Man Is Jailed After Death in Fight warned they could have fatal consequences for who undertakes such gambles."

On internaliona issues he contended hjmself will a restatement of Soviet suppor for Arab causes and a condem nation of imperialism and colon ialism. He said the Soviet Union has decided to give financial help to the United Arab Republic's five-year plan, but left it to Nas ser to cite the figures. Khrushchev did say his aid would include a one-million ton annual capacity steel plant and a model farm using Soviet agricultural techniques with reclaimed desert land. Turning to his host, Khru shev said: "The revolution p the Arab peoples, as Presiden Nasser has emphasized, is pow erful and important."
