FOREIGN CREDITS AND THE USA: Yesterday’s morning and evening newspapers carried the following statement from a reliable source in the American Economic Mission in Athens: «US economic policy toward Greece remains unchanged. Rumors of a change in this policy are unfounded. The American Mission believes that credits of any kind from abroad are useful for Greece.» The head of the American Economic Mission, Mr Leland Barrows, made the following statement to Kathimerini yesterday afternoon: «I have never made nor do I intend to make any statement on the issue. The Mission of the Department of Foreign Programs in Greece does not want to express any opinion on the matter.» GREECE AND THE USA: According to a reliable source, following repeated demarches from the Soviet government presented by the Soviet ambassador in Athens, Mr Sergeyev, the Greek government has finally given its approval, on condition of mutuality, to the appointment of a Russian naval attache at the Soviet Embassy in Athens.
