Prime Minister Andreas Papandreou's ruling Socialists pledged to rid Greece of U.S. military installations and nuclear weapons if they win a second four-year term in parliamentary elections June 2. "The foreign bases undermine our national defense and expose us to the danger of annihilation in the event of nuclear war," a party statement said. It did not call for withdrawal from the Atlantic Alliance, as Papandreou urged when he came to power in 1981. The party had also advocated ousting U.S. bases, but a new agreement was signed in 1983.
