Soviet envoy Yuli M. Vorontsov arrived in Pakistan for a visit expected to include talks with Afghan guerrilla leaders. Vorontsov indicated that Moscow’s troop withdrawal from Afghanistan will proceed on schedule if there are no further rebel attacks. Under accords signed last April in Geneva, all Soviet troops are to be withdrawn by Feb. 15. Vorontsov, one of Moscow’s top diplomatic trouble-shooters, arrived in Islamabad from Tehran, where he spoke with Iranian-based Afghan resistance leaders.
