USSR-Berlin: Ehe USSR has renewed efforts to induce the Adenauer government to adopt a more favorable attitude toward four-power negotiations on Berlin and Germany and to stimulate West German interest in a direct approach to Moscow on these prob- lemsI II talks last week with officials of the Free Demo- cratic Party and with West German correspondents, Soviet Embassy officials in Bonn took the line that the prestige which the USSR gained from its recent space achievements has reduced pressures on Moscow for an early Berlin settlement. The Soviet spokesmen indi- cated that, although the Soviets will not wait indefinite- ly, they would "go along' if the West were willing to engage in "true negotiations." They complained about Adenauer's unwillingness to sanction four-power talks and hinted that the Berlin wall could be dismantled if Khrushchev be- Is a cnange in the Western attitude toward neaoti- lieves the present impasse can be overcome only by another meeting with President Kennedy. He warned that since the West seems unwilling to improve the Berlin situation, the USSR would have to bring the problem before the UN and demand that Western troops be removed from the "powder keg:' These overtures probably are designed to con- vey the impression that the Soviet leaders are not committed to any firm deadline for signing a sepa- rate peace treaty and that they would be willing to postpone any final decision for some time if there Approved For Rele - A006500520001-2 25X1 Approved For Release 2003/04/17 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO06500520001-2 25X1 Next 1 Page(s) In Document Exempt Approved For Release 2003/04/17 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO06500520001-2 51 X j Approved Fo~Iea - 06500520001-2 2 25X1 25X1 rince i anou s ca on nations par- ticipating in the -Geneva conference on Laos to hold another conference to guarantee Cambodian neutrality has received little support beyond prompt endorsement by Moscow, Peiping, and Hanoi. )je Indian ambassador in Phnom Penh has told US officials that New Delhi was disappointed that India was not consulted beforehand.

Moscow, however, is continuing to fulfill its military aid commitments to Indonesia.

Spokesmen for Wilaya III and Wilaya IV have said that they no longer recognize Ben Bella's political bureau, and Wilaya IV leaders have announced that they will defend Algiers. The military forces at Ben Bella's disposal are superior to those of Wilaya IV, and Wilaya M's troops will probably not be committed to defend Algiers. Nevertheless, a quick decision is not assured. The restiveness of the Algiers populace, frustrated over unemployment and the lack of effective government, and pressure from middle level Algerian officials, disgusted with political bickering, could still force Ben Bella to -compromise.
