  • Description

    PARLIAMENTARIANS FROM THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION NATIONS, NOV 16 URGED THAT A MILITARY BUILD-UP IN CENTRAL EUROPE BE CARRIED OUT BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR IN ACCORDANCE WITH REQUIREMENTS SET UP BY GEN. LAURIS NORSTAD, SUPREME ALLIED COMMANDER IN EUROPE. THIS WAS ONE OF THE FINAL ACTIONS TAKEN BY THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION PARLIAMENTARIANS' CONFERENCE AS IT CONCLUDED ITS SEVENTH ANNUAL MEETING HERE ON THE STATE OF THE ALLIANCE.

    AT THE OPENING OF THE CONFERENCE NOV 13, GENERAL NORSTAD INFORMED DELEGATES THAT BY THE END OF THE YEAR THERE WOULD BE 25 ALLIED DIVISIONS, ALMOST ALL COMBAT-READY, FACING COMMUNIST FORCES IN CENTRAL EUROPE.

    IN ADDITION TO MILITARY QUESTIONS, A WIDE RANGE OF RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE BY THE LEGISLATORS IN THE POLITICAL, ECONOMIC, SCIENTIFIC, TECHNICAL, CULTURAL AND INFORMATION FIELDS.

    IN WASHINGTON, NOV 17, U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE DEAN RUSK SAID THE UNITED STATES OFFER TO PROVIDE NATO WITH ITS OWN NUCLEAR FORCE WAS STILL OPEN. SOME NATO COUNTRIES IN EUROPE HAVE VEHICLES CAPABLE OF DELIVERING NUCLEAR WEAPONS, BUT THE WARHEADS ARE UNDER CUSTODY AND EXCLUSIVE CONTROL. EXISTING UNITED STATES LAW WOULD HAVE TO BE CHANGED BEFORE THIS CONTROL COULD BE SHARED.
