Tass warns West not to follow Washington's lead

The Soviet news agency Tass said Christmas Day that Western European nations were faced with the choice of following Washington onto a ''fatal path of confrontation'' or pursuing detente by themselves.

Tass said Washington was committed to a crusade against communism that damaged West Europe's interests and was intended to make it economically and militarily more dependent on the US.
