The World : U.S. Meddling, Poles Say

The Polish government intensified its charges that the United States is improperly helping Solidarity’s election campaign--an accusation Solidarity and U.S. diplomats denied. A State Department spokesman said Congress has authorized $2 million for the trade union for two years, but U.S. spokesman Richard Boucher said, “We’re not interfering with the campaign.” After a government statement accused Western diplomats of helping the opposition, an official spokesman said the “way of behaving of those diplomats unambiguously showed that they were taking part in the electoral campaign in favor of the opposition.”
