Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, August 26, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Russians backing away from Romania showdown over China visit BUCHAREST (Al1) Clear indications have developed lliat Die toiet Union has abandoned plans for major military ma- noeuvres Lhis month close to Romania's horde is. Western sources reported Wednesday. The manoeuvres, or at least their threat, would have served as a warning lo indcpendenl- niinclcd Homania, wliich re- mains friendly to China despite the Peking-Moscow feud. liomania's policy is that the Balkans should be free ot mili- laiy exercises. A Romanian law passed alter the Soviet-led inva- sion of Czechoslovakia in IMS forbids the transit of foreign troops through Romania. The question of transit might have come up because Romania lies between Bulgaria and the Soviet Union. The Communist party newspaper Seinlcia gave a prominent place on the top o[ its front page to a brief report on a visit paid by Soviet Deputy Premier Mihail A. Lesechko to the mountain retreat of Presi- dent Nicolae Caeusescu at Pre- deal in the Transylvanian Alps. WARM, COMRADELY The visit was described as "warm and comradely" by the official Romanian news agency Agerpies. This was nil improvement over the tone of the meeting last week between Ceaiiscscn and the Soviet ambassador when their talks were described only as word employed where there is sub- stantial difference of opinion. At the same lime Scinleia left for page five a report on the visit of a Chinese military dele- gation headed by Gen. Li Te- cheng, chief of the party appa- ratus within Ibc Chinese Army. There seemed to be no effort to place stress on the visit. The Romanians appear lo be making an effort, without mov- ing away from their independ- ent foreign policy, lo defuse. what has had the appearance ol increasingly tense relations with the Soviet Union. i Defence policy WASHINGTON fAI'i The U.S. .state dcparlmcnt had some praise Wednesday for Canada's newly-outlined defence policy ivliiJe avoiding direct comment on Ottawa's decision lo scrap controversial Bomnre anti air- craft missiles. Press officer Hubert ,1. Mc- Closkcy said the Canadian white paper on defence, issued Tues- day, shows lhal "Canada seeks to keep its lorces at their present high level of I raining and preparedness." "Of particular imporlance from the U.S. point ot view is Ihe high prioriu the paper as- signs lo the defence ot North American co-operation with U.S. forces and the maintenance of Canada's NATO force com- lie said. As for Canada's plan to shut down its Iwo Bomarc missile bases in Eastern Canada, the state dcpailmcnf spokesman said only that Washington knew Ottawa had been considering doing this and "Ibis is a deci- sion for Canada to take." He said the Bomarc bases might not be dismantled for an- ollier year. Defence Secretary llclvin Laird had urged that the Bom- arc installations at North Bay, Onl and La Macaza. Quo., be continued. The Pentagon fell lhal the missiles could help in- tercept Ijombeis Hindi further norlb than could manned air- craft The Canadian view is that the subsonic, nuclear-lipped mis- siles set up in 1963 arc obsolete.
