Saudi Aide Asks Moscow to Push for Gulf Truce

From Reuters

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al Faisal left the Soviet Union on Saturday after urging that Moscow join efforts to force Iranian compliance with a U.N. call for a Gulf War cease-fire, the official Tass news agency said.

Saud, an envoy of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council that is currently chaired by Saudi Arabia, delivered a message from King Fahd while in Moscow that suggested the U.N. Security Council meet to discuss Iran's rejection of a cease-fire. He was due to travel on to Washington with similar proposals, Soviet press reports said.
