NotesNews: July 15. AFter a meeting in Paris of only two days, foreign ministers of all European countries, with the exception of the Soviet block and Finland, agreed on a European recovery programme to be put to the United States. "It was the quickest conference I have ever have ever presided over," Ernest Bevin, British Foreign Secreatry, said last night. The recovery programme, drawn up at the invitation of George C. Marshall, US Secretary of State, will be funded by the US. Last month, Marshall warned that Europe must have help or "face economic, social, and political deterioration of a very grave character." ... [Chronicle of the 20th century] As a first step to the Marshall plan, the European statesmen met in Paris to draw up a balance sheet of needs and resources, to see how they could help one another and how much American aid was required to put Europe on its feet. Bidault, for France, said that the resources of Germany should be used for everybody, including the Germans, which was interpreted as meaning that the restriction of the Postdam Agreement would not be regarded as inviolate.
