State Department Notes “Serious Development” in Berlin

Oct. 25, 1961 - The State Department announced today that the Soviet commander in Berlin had rejected a protest by the U.S. commander against an East German order requiring all foreigners to show their passports to enter East Berlin. Lincoln White, State Department press officer, said: “We regard this as a serious development and are taking it up with the governments concerned.” Mr. White said that U.S. officials, whether in military or civilian dress, have the right to enter East Berlin and to move freely within it without showing any identification to the East German police.
