Foreign Secretary George Brown was flying to Moscow tfcay for talks with Soviet leaders on the Middle East crisis and other world problems.

With the withdrawal of the U.N. force last week at Nasser's demand, Egyptian forces rc- :urned to Sharm el Sheikh and once more trained their guns on the shipping channel through which Israel gets most of its oil from Iran. Speaking to his troops, Nasser renewed Egypt's claim that the Gulf of Aq«ba is within Egyp tian territorial waters and declared: "The Jews are threatening war. We say welcome, we are ready for war and will no surrender our rights in Aqaba." Hopes for an easing of the crisis centered on U.N.
