Soviets Mark Potsdam With Blast at the West

From Reuters

The Soviet Union accused the Western allies Wednesday of trying to break postwar territorial and political agreements and of threatening European peace.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Vladimir Lomeiko, at a news conference marking the 40th anniversary of the Potsdam conference, also accused West Germany of carrying out a program of "remilitarization," including arms production and the deployment of U.S. missiles on its soil.

The Potsdam conference, which began July 17, 1945, assembled leaders of the Soviet Union, the United States and Britain and continued the work of the Yalta conference in shaping the boundaries of postwar Europe.
