IMRE NAGY: Vienna – The former prime minister of the communist regime in Hungary, Mr Imre Nagy, has been reinstated and welcomed back into the fold of the Hungarian Communist Party from which he had been ousted at the end of last year. (…) The likelihood of Nagy returning to power could possibly give Hungarians hope of an improvement in their situation, particularly in the economic sector. (Ed note: Nagy became prime minister once more during the Hungarian uprising, followed by the Soviet invasion. He was eventually executed in 1958.) GREECE-USSR: A Greek parliamentary delegation leaves tomorrow for the Russian capital at the invitation of the USSR’s Supreme Soviet. Radio Moscow has reported that after the visit to Athens by Soviet Foreign Minister Dimitri Sepilov, which contributed to an improvement of relations between the two states, the visit by the Greek deputies to Moscow is an important event and the next step toward a rapprochement between the two peoples, based on the principles of mutual respect and non-intervention in each other’s domestic affairs.
