Background: Visnews filmed June 26, M. Spaak, Secretary General of N.A.T.O. laying a wreath on the Tomb of the Greek Unknown Warrior in Athens.
M. Spaak who was on an official visit to Athens, afterwards spoke on "N.A.T.O. in the service of peace and liberty".
Referring apparently to recent Soviet proposals that there should be a Balkan zone free of nuclear weapons, he said that the West had good season to regard treaty guarantees with scepticism, and as the nations of the world renounced warfare as a political method in the United Nations Charter, there was no value in any further guarantees of a similar nature.
He said that general and controlled disarmament was the primary object of the N.A.T.O. alliance and he regarded this as the only way of ensuring peace.
M. Spaak's audience consisted of Greek Government Ministers and Ambassadors of the N.A.T.O. countries.
