KARAMANLIS IN TURKEY: Ankara, 8 – During yesterday’s meeting between Greek Prime Minister Constantine Karamanlis and his Turkish counterpart Adnan Menderes, along with their respective foreign ministers, problems in bilateral relations were examined in breadth and depth. Both sides said there was full agreement on general issues. However, the extent of the issues is such that it is highly doubtful everything on the agenda will be covered by tomorrow. Therefore the joint communique will most likely be issued in Constantinople the day after tomorrow or even on Monday. BULGARIA: Sofia, 8 – Bulgarian Prime Minister Anton Yugov gave an interview to Sofia radio today in which he accused Greece of stepping up its armaments program. He said the Greek-Turkish talks in Ankara were a threat to the security of other Balkan nations. KHRUSHCHEV: London, 8 – Russian Prime Minister Nikita Khrushchev today accused what he called «the hostile imperialist forces» of continuing to prepare for war. In a message to the World Peace Council meeting in Stockholm, he said that anyone who wanted to to avert war had a duty to intensify the struggle to unite all those forces that were in favor of peace.
