Shepilov and the Arabs

July 1956
New Republic;7/16/56, Vol. 135 Issue 3, p6
Dmitri Shepilov's visit to the Middle East has not been so successful as he and many Western observers had expected. For Colonel Nasser, Shepilov was by far the most spectacular showpiece in the shop window. He was almost a symbol of Egypt's new place in the world. Shepilov refused to come down on the side of the Arabs against the Jews and even hinted, that the Russians might be prepared to sell arms to Israel as well as to Egypt. If he did, it would account for the firm criticism of him in the Lebanese press. Shepilov seems to have made the most extravagant promises of economic aid.
