Iraqi radio distributed information today claiming that the anti-missile defense of the country downed an American plane. The unmanned spy plane was downed on Sunday morning on the northern part of Iraq. It was reported that the plane fell on the Iraqi territory. Military sources of Kuwait confirmed that the plane fell to ground in the north of Kuwait. The Iraqi anti-missile defense excelled last month too, attacking two spy planes on the territory of southern Iraq. One of them was hit by a missile and then shelled near the ground. The other plane managed to disappear. The Pentagon has not yet either confirmed or rejected this information.

The choice of the city of Helsinki is not incidental as the capital of Finland had hosted US-Soviet negotiations on the limitation of nuclear stockpiles in 1969
