US favors centrist Greek gove:rnment-The Department of State has expressed its concurrence in the views ex- pressed by US Ambassador Grady in his recent interview with King Paul of Greece concerning the establishment of a centrist government, headed by Plasti.r'as. The Depart- ment informed Grady that the elimination of Plastiras at this time, and the setting up of an alternative coalition, would be interpreted in the US as a contrived effort to frustrate the will of the Greek people as evidenced in the recent elections and would be likely to create more con- cern than would any possible subsequent disillusionment concerning the Plastiras government.
