BRITISH IGNORE RECOGNITION OF AUSTRIAN REGIME

From the May 1, 1945 Edition of Stars and Stripes

LONDON, April 30.–A British Foreign Office commentator said today that the British government does not recognize the Austrian Provisional Government in Russian-occupied Vienna “as a provisional government or anything else,” the United Press Reported.

Official circles here were surprised by the Moscow radio announcement: That a Soviet-sponsored Austrian government had been formed.

The Times’ diplomatic correspondent, recalling that the Yalta agreement provided for an International Allied Control Commission to be set up in the Austrian capital, said dryly that the “British and American representatives of the control commission have not yet arrived” there.
