(2) Zones of Occupation in Germany. From March to September 1944 the Commission considered the problem of zones of occupation in Germany and the joint occupation of Berlin. The first step in agreement was set forth in an E. A. C. Protocol of September 12, 1944,3 outlining three zones of occupation in Germany and three areas of occupation in Berlin. By a further Agreement of November 14, 1944,4 the U. S. and U.K. zones in Germany were fixed. At Yalta it was agreed that the French zone would be formed out of the U. S. and British zones,5 and the French zone has been agreed between the U. S., French and British Representatives on the E. A. C. Except for determining a French area of occupation in Greater Berlin, the Commission has completed a draft Agreement to provide for this adjustment in the zones.6 The E. A. C. agreements on zones in Germany are now being carried out by the military authorities.
