Not even the Soviet Union could influence the Arabs now to improve their relations with Israel, Anastasias Mikoyan, a Deputy Premier of the USSR, told Rabbi Solomon Freilich of Mt. Vernon, N. Y. , the rabbi said here today.

Rabbi Freilich, who is now touring Israel, visited Moscow earlier in the month, as well as Poland and Czechoslovakia. Mt, Mikoyan said that an improvement in Israel-Arab relations would be a long time in coming.

Reporting on a visit to the recently-opened yeshiva in Moscow, Rabbi Freilich said that 20 students were enrolled when he visited and another 12 were due to enter next month. A large number of youngsters have applied for entrance, he added.
