PAGJB TEN Soviets Charge Treaty Violation Prafmf ic Directed To U.S. Becau«e of Ships in Italian Area •y Edirard V. Robert* (United frtm SUff Correspondent) LONDON, Jan. 30 (UP)—Russia ehtrged today for the second time ta 24 hours that the United §tates wu violating the Italian treaty, this time protesting against the presence of American warships In Italian waters. The Russian protest, broadcast over Radio Moscow, said calls by American warships at Italian ports contradicted terms of the Italian treaty which provided for withdrawal of allied armed forces. The broadcast said Dip visits were "explained by the desire of the United States to render pollli- cal support to the (Premier Alclde de) Oasperl government, which enjoys little prestige among the Italian people." The protest was made officially to U. S. Secretary of Stale George C. Marshall last Wednesday by Soviet Ambassador Alexander Pan- yuskin, the broadcast said. A .similar protest was sent to Britain. This procedure was the same as followed In Uussia's charge yesterday that reactivation of the American air base at Mellaha, Tripoli, was a treaty violation. Britain, which has military command over Tripoli until the future of the Kalian colonies Is settled, denied the charge. A foreign office spokesman said it would be rejected. In her latest protest, Russia snid «he had asked the French government at Paris, where the German satellite treaties are deposited, to make the protest, known In all allied ant) associated power* that signed the Italian treaty. Marines In Mediterranean "The Paris press reports that American war vessels have reappeared In the Italian ports of Naples, Taranto, Leghorn, Genoa ant! others and have continued to remain for a long time, which fact is explained by the desire of the United States to render political support to the De Gasperl government. "These ships in Italian ports also are said to be connected with sending units or American Marines to the Mediterranean. "Tlie stay of tlic American naval squadron In Italian ports contradicts the Italian peace treaty. "Statements of American offlclnls recently published in the American press confirm these facts of United States violation or the peace treaty with Italy, which provides for withdrawal from Italy of all armed forces or the allied and associated nowcr* by Dec. 15, 1947. "In view of the above USSR ambassador in the United States Panyushkln on Jan. 28 sent a note to Marshall, the test of which also was conveyed by the Soviet government to the government of Prance with the request to make the contents known to the allied and associated powers which signed (lie peace treaty with Italy."
