‘The agreement between France, Germany and Italy runs counter to the spirit of WEU’ from Le Monde (24 January 1958)

On 24 January 1958, the French daily newspaper Le Monde describes the British authorities' dissatisfaction at the agreement between France, Germany and Italy on arms production, which they believe undermines the credibility of Western European Union (WEU). Indeed, WEU, which has an Agency for the Control of Armaments, was not informed of this agreement.
