Nicaraguan leader off to talk with Brezhnev

Nicaraguan leader Daniel Ortega Saavedra left for a visit to the Soviet Union , during which he will talk with President Leonid Brezhnev, a Nicaraguan Government communique said. Mr. Ortega, coordinator of Nicaragua's three-man junta, was accompanied by a delegation of ministers and leaders of workers' organizations. The leftist government's ties to the Soviet Union have strengthened since the United States cut off aid to Nicaragua because of its alleged arms supplies to guerrillas in El Salvador.
