Russia has quietly accepted ie narrowed scope of the lignment and has settled for more modest program of ooperation. She is confident that on his basis there are good irospects for continued business with her allies, but above all on a bilateral basis. * * + * THERE ARE some sectors, nevertheless, in which closer alignment is both sought and accepted. This applies to individual projects, rather than he economy as a whole, among them prominently the steel industry where Russia s embarked on joint planning and p o o l i n g arrangements with the Poles, Czechs anc Hungarians in "Intermetal,' Jieir joint top organization. Romania has left little doubt that she is determined to go ahead on her own. Rich in resources, including oil, she has already embarked with considerable success on the exclusion of her program. Others, encouraged by this move towards greater independence are following suit, with Russia looking on. Most of them have also expressed their desire for more trade with the West from which they expect direct or indirect assistance towards their own development. * * * * RUSSIA; IN the circumstances is not objecting.
