Unless Haldeman explains it — which he will.” At that point, the President sighed. “But I think we can survive that too,” he said. “Yeah, absolutely,” Ziegler replied. “We’ll survive it all.” Haldeman, present for part of the Nixon-Dean meeting, has testified that the President rejected as “wrong” payment of hush money to the burglars. The Watergate grand jury, after hearing a tape of the meeting, indicted Haldeman for perjury on that point — largely on the basis of listening to the tape. “Block Trail” Tho Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sun., July 21, 1974 M rs.

But, he added: “Turkey is and will remain an ally of the U. S. Greece is and will remain an ally of the U. S. It is in the interests of the Greek and of the Turkish people to insure that Greece remains an ally of Turkey ... as enemies they stand to lose all.” “Deplores Pressures” Scab also declared the U.S. “deplores the pressures . . . which contributed to the Turkish act on Cyprus and for which Greece must bear a heavy share of responsibility.” The final resolution was drafted by the U. S., Austria, Peru, Britain and F’rance but was introduced as an unsponsored resolution by the council president, Ambassador Javier Perez de Cuellar of Peru. Before the formal session, Scab accused the Soviet Union of delaying the appeal, charging that “the Soviet attitude is not helpful.” Sought Delay Turkey, which is not a member of the council, sought a delay in the vote. Turkish ambassador Osman Olcay told newsmen that before acting the council should hear Rauf Denk-tash. head of the Turkish-Cypriot community and vicepresident of the island under Makarios. Olcay described Denktash as the only legitimate authority remaining in Cyprus, and said efforts were being made to bring him to New York. He said his country’s intervention was “aimed at restoring legality,” and it would welcome the return of Makarios as president provided he guaranteed the rights of the Turkish minority.
