Russia or tne West who wanted to give the Germans more freedom. Acheson told a Washington news conference after his return from Paris that Russia had been put on the defensive in the struggle for Europe and wns afraid to relax its lion grip on Eastern Germany because they knew they would no longer be able to control the German people if they did so. Acheson said the reason for the strength of the West in the Paris sessions was "the progress that has been achieved in the restoration of Western Europe." Vishinsky, taking » complele opposite view, said: "I think that precisely the failures of the Marshall Plan should be regarded as one of the reasons for I the departure of the three (west" em) ministers at the Paris session from their original so-called 'firm' policy." The soviet leader said the Paris conference came about because of mutual concessions over Berlin by East and West and added: "I think that in the future too, it will be nece.ssary to make certain mutual concessions compatible with the principles of the Potsdam agreement." Vishinsky charged Acheson with a "groundless" assertion in saying the Russians were afraid to grant freedom to the Germans The Soviet spokesman said the most important result of the Paris meeting was "the undoubted failure of the policy ol splitting Germany and the aggravating international relations and the undoubted success of the policy of restoring the unity of Germany and of Improving international relations for international cooperation."
