(Studio) Sudan government in Africa resumes diplomatic relations with US, broken after 1967 Mideast war. Decision comes shortly after Egypt orders Soviet advisers out of country. Sudan kicked its Russian advisers out a year ago.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Cairo, Egypt) In Russian suburb of Cairo, life continues normally, though hundreds of Soviet military advisers are leaving Egypt. Russians never wear military uniforms in public here, but most soldiers easy to spot by bearing and swagger. Egyptian President Anwar Sadat seems anxious to keep 2000 Russian civilian economy and industry advisers. No evidence of unusual activity at Soviet embassy. Exodus of 15,000 Soviet military men is being carried out quietly and unobtrusively as they continue low profile.
