A former Norwegian diplomat, Arne Treholt, on trial in Oslo for espionage, said he passed documents to a Soviet KGB agent while he served at his country's U.N. mission. According to prosecutor Lars Qvigstad, Treholt told investigators last year that he met repeatedly with Soviet agent Vladimir Zjizjin at the United Nations and at a number of New York City restaurants in 1981. However, Treholt admitted that he lied in saying Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko expressed pleasure over the information he provided.
