DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER: Washington, 10 – US President Dwight D. Eisenhower has reaffirmed the West’s firm intention to remain in West Berlin, irrespective of any pressure from the communists. Speaking at his weekly press conference, President Eisenhower discussed the historical and political reasons behind why the West must remain in West Berlin with the eventual aim of the reunification of Germany… Agreements on Berlin, added Eisenhower, had been made in London in 1944 and approved in Yalta by the political leaders of Russia, Britain and the USA. PAPADIMITRIOU: 12 – The parliamentary deputy for Pella, in northern Greece, N. Papadimitriou, who was elected on the United Democratic Left (EDA) ticket, issued an announcement yesterday that he had collaborated with EDA because a number of the party’s basic platform proposals coincided with his own personal political beliefs. However, he said that EDA had shown that it did not believe in what it had proclaimed and was practicing politics in a way that obstructed the restoration of serene political conditions that would allow for social justice.
