Summary note
A file containing documents relating to the Berlin crisis. Documents in the file include a record of an interview given by Konrad Adenauer, the West German Chancellor, to the B.B.C. discussing West German-Soviet relations -- and a report from the British representative to the United Nations about growing interest in U.N. involvement in the Berlin and German questions. Subjects discussed in the file include the reference of the issues to the International Court of Justice -- a decision by Willy Brandt, the Mayor of West Berlin, to refuse a meeting with Nikita Khrushchev, the Soviet premier -- a press conference in which Dwight D. Eisenhower, the American President, had said that he would consider using war and nuclear weapons to maintain Western access to Berlin -- and the denial of an Italian press story of an Anglo-Soviet agreement for the Western withdrawal from Berlin, which would become a free city under East German sovereignty.
