The soviet Leader reiterated in a Kremlin speech that he wanted an East West no aggression pact. He did not insist that it be tied to the treaty being negotiated Here to forbid nuclear test blasts in the air outer space and under water. This would seem to indicate that Khrushchev might be receptive to a counter suggestion made by president Kennedy through his special envoy w. Averell Harriman that the Issue be handled through non aggression declarations. At the same time Khrushchev again announced he was ready to permit Western inspection of vital military installations inside the soviet Union As safeguard against concentrations for a Surprise attack. This was offered As a device for helping to ease world tensions and was not directly connected with the test ban treaty.

Nevertheless the soviet government considers that if an agreement is achieved on a ban for nuclear tests in the atmosphere cosmic space and under water there will be an important and useful step bidding for easing of East West tensions at a time when the soviet Union remains heavily involved in a communist family dispute with red China Khrushchev spoke at a Friendship rally for visiting hungarian communist Leader Janos Kadar. In Quick succession he revived a russian offer of 1958 to permit foreign inspectors to take up station at soviet airfields Railroad stations highways and ports to prevent secret concentrations of troops for Surprise attacks.
