  • Description

    RUMANIA HAS AGAIN DEFIED ITS SIX WARSAW PACT ALLIES BY REFUSING TO JOIN THEM IN ENDORSING THE NUCLEAR NON-PROLIFERATION TREATY WORKED OUT BY THE SOVIET UNION AND THE UNITED STATES. A STATEMENT ISSUED IN SOFIA YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) AFTER A TWO DAY MEETING OF THE PACT BORE THE SIGNATURES OF ALL THE PARTICIPANTS EXCEPT RUMANIA.

    THE STATEMENT, ISSUED AFTER THE DEPARTURE OF DELEGATION HEADS, SAID A NON-PROLIFERATION TREATY COULD NOT BE POSTPONED. IT SUPPORTED THE SIGNING AND IMPLEMENTING O A DRAFT INTRODUCED AT THE GENEVA DISARMAMENT CONFERENCE LAST JANUARY.

    THE SIX STATES - BULGARIA, CZECHOSLOVAKIA, HUNGARY, POLAND, EAST GERMANY AND THE SOVIET UNION -- CALLED FOR COMPLETION OF NEGOTIATIONS AT GENEVA BY 15 MARCH.

    EAST GERMANY WAS REPRESENTED AT THE CONFERENCE BY COMMUNIST PARTY LEADER WALTER ULBRICHT AND THE SOVIET DELEGATION BY PARTY LEADER LEONID BREZHNEV.

    THE RUMANIANS WERE APPARENTLY NOT SATISFIED BY THE AGREEMENT REACHED AT GENEVA BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES, THE SOVIET UNION AND BRITAIN, WHICH PROMISES ASSISTANCE TO ANY NATION GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

    THEY WANT THE NUCLEAR POWERS TO LIQUIDATE THEIR STOCKPILES, DESTROY MISSILE VEHICLES AND TIGHTEN UP INSPECTION.
