MOSCOW, June 14 (PTI, AP & Reuter)—The Soviet Government today moved another step forward in its effort to secure border settlement with China by inviting that country for talks without preconditions in Moscow. It assured China that if it wanted to normalise relations with the Soviet Union “road for this is open.” The Note running into more than 3,000 words informed China of the appointment of a plenipotentiary to head the Soviet side at the proposed talks — Deputy Minister P.I. Zyryanov — and left the exact date of the meeting to be decided through diplomatic channels. Mr. Zyryanov is a Colonel-General and Commander-in-Chief of the Soviet Border Guards. The Note did not give his military rank or his command. Mr. Zyryanov also headed the Soviet team at the abortive 1964 talks. It told the Chinese that the Kremlin “expects the Chinese Government to inform it shortly whether the above proposals on the dates and place for the continuation of the consultations are acceptable to it.”
