MORNING APRIL 3 1949 PRICE FIFTEEN CENTS LDS Session Signers Aver Russ Twist Pacts Intent 12Power Statement Soviet Of Distorting Facts WASHINGTON April 2 JP 12 Atlantic pact powers speaking for the first time with a single voice coldly accused Russia Saturday of misinter preting the nature and intent of their noniCommu nist alliance A formal statement issued here on the authority of the 12 foreign ministers virtually charged Rus with deliberately distorting the purposes of the treaty Moscow in a note Thursday called it an aggressive move against the Soviet union Complete Rejection Saturdays statement was a complete and sweeping rejection of the Soviet note The pact it said is not directed against any nation or group of nations but only against armed aggression The statement was approved at the first meeting of the foreign ministers They will gatheragain at 3 pm EST Monday to sign the historic document Against it the Soviet union has waged a campaign of denunciation for months In their meeting Saturday foreign ministers of Belgium Can adaDenmark Prance Iceland Italy Luxembourg Netherlands Norway Portugal and United Kingdom and U S secretary of state also took two other actions FormsBy Approve Text An official communique reported them as follows 1 They formally approved text of the 20year treaty It would pledge the United States and each of the other powers to join in resisting an attack against any of 12 nations 2 They decided that an Atlantic councilprovidedfor in the treaty should be composed of foreign ministersrorMotherrepresentatives of governments They agreed it should meet as soon as the treaty goes intoeffect and should then set up a defense committee The top diplomatsof the west ern world thus got off to a quicK start on creating peace machinery for the alliance Steps Still to Climb It cannot come into actual exist ence until 1 the agreement is signed Monday 2V it is approved by the U S senate andpossible other western and 3 it is formally ratified by the seven governments which orig inally drafted it The statement of the foreign ministers in commenting on the formal Russian attack on the treaty Thursday had a cold and Impersonal quality It was in contrast to the anger and excitement sometimes ex pressed inexchanges between the Soviet union and some individual governments It was designed primarily to make two points These were 1 that the Rus sians are misinterpreting the treaty instead of judging ly by the treaty itself what it pro poses to do and 2 that the treaty is completely defensive in conformity with the
