Poland, And Balkan Countries N.Z. Press Association—Copyright Rec. 9.30 a.m. LONDON, Aug. 3. The text of the Potsdam agreement on Poland states that the conference noted with pleasure the agreement between the Poles leading to the formation of the Polish Government of National Unity. It adds that the British and American establishment of diplomatic relations with this Government resulted in the withdrawal of recognition from the former Polish Government in London, which no longer exists. , Britain and America have taken measures to protect the interests of the Polish Provisional Government in the Polish State property under their control, and to protect the property against alienation by third parties. All proper legal facilities will be given to the Polish Government to recover any Polish State property wrongfully alienated.

The three Powers are anxious to assist the Polish Provisional Government in facilitating the return as soon as practicable of all Poles, including members of the armed forces and merchant marine who wish to go home. They expect that Poles v who return home shall be accorded the same right to personal property as all Polish citizens. Delineating Western Borders The three heads of Government reaffirm their opinion that the final delineation of the western frontier of Poland should await the peace conference. The three Governments, pending the final determination of Poland's western frontier, agree that former German territories east of the line running from the Baltic Sea immediately west of Swinemunde, along the Oder River to the confluence of the western Neisse River and along the western Neisse to the Czechoslovakian frontier, including that portion of East Prussia not placed under Russian administration, and including the area of the former Free City of Danzig, shall be under the administration of the Polish State and for such purposes should not be considered part of the Russian occupation zone of Germany. The text of the agreement on Austria states that the conference agreed to re-examine the Russian proposal for the extension of the authority of the Austrian Provisional Government throughout Austria after the entry of the British and American forces in Vienna. The three Governments agreed that the revision of the procedures of the Allied Control Commissions in Bulgaria, Rumania and Hungary as recommended by the Russian representatives would now be undertaken, ' remembering the interests and responsibilities of the three Governments, which had jointly presented the terms of armistice to the respective countries.

Prague radio says: "The Potsdam communique gives the Czechs and Slovaks complete satisfaction by recognising our objective, the moral right to rid ourselves of the German minority. This constitutes a resounding victory for Czechoslovak policy."
