Britain promised Wednesday to compensate the Baltic states for gold worth about $160 million that it held when the three countries were annexed by the Soviet Union in 1940. The decision was a timely boost for the cash-strapped republics, whose independence was recognized by Britain last August. Prime Minister John Major spoke to reporters after a meeting with Lithuanian President Vytautas Landsbergis. Britain had refused to acknowledge Soviet claims on the gold and sold it in 1967.
