Greek premier, after visiting Poland, raps West's policy

Greek Prime Minister Andreas Papandreou ended a two-day visit to Poland Wednesday, the first NATO leader to go there since martial law was declared in 1981. He criticized Western policy toward the Polish regime and indirectly praised Poland for starting ''a new experiment in socialism in Eastern Europe.''

Poland treated the visit as a major event, with one newspaper asserting, ''This is one of the symptoms of Poland's overcoming the isolation and her return to a normal dialogue with the West.'' The foreign ministers of West Germany and Italy as well as a high official of Britain's Foreign Ministry are expected in Warsaw shortly in what is seen as a gradual move toward improving ties with the Polish government.
