  • Description

    The United States Sixth Fleet, on manoeuvres in the Eastern Mediterranean, has paid a goodwill visit to Istanbul after completing exercises in waters between Crete and Greece.

    Movements of the fleet caused concern in some quarters when it was feared that America might intervene if any move were made to invade Cyprus, by one or other of the guarantor powers.

    The appearance of the fleet in the Eastern Mediterranean caused open anti-American feeling in Greece and sparked off anti-U.S. demonstrations in Athens. To avoid any unpleasantness, the Greek Government last week suggested that for 'political reasons' the Sixth Fleet cancel a planned goodwill visit to the Greek capital.
