Moscow Refuses Payment to U.N. for Units in Gaza and Other Areas

The Soviet Union has reiterated its refusal to contribute to the United Nations peace-keeping operations which include the maintaining of an emergency force on the Israel-Egyptian frontier along the Gaza Strip. In a statement issued by the Soviet Mission to the UN the Russians claimed that the assessments for these operations were illegal. The Soviet position was repeated in response to a statement made in London last week by the United States UN representative Adlai Stevenson who said that he was convinced the Russians would pay.
