  • Description

    IN HIS FIRST MAJOR POLICY SPEECH TO THE WEST GERMAN PARLIAMENT IN BONN TODAY (TUESDAY), NEWLY APPOINTED CHANCELLOR WILLY BRANDT OFFERED NEGOTIATIONS TO THE SOVIET UNION, POLAND AND EAST GERMANY IN FURTHERANCE OF A GOOD NEIGHBOURS UNDERSTANDING.

    HE SAID THAT GERMANY NEEDED CO-OPERATION AND CO-ORDINATION WITH THE WEST AND UNDERSTANDING WITH EAST.

    IN HIS SPEECH, HERR BRANDT WENT ON TO SAY THAT HIS COUNTRY'S PRACTICAL POLITICAL WORK IN THE YEARS IMMEDIATELY AHEAD WAS TO PRESERVE THE UNITY OF THE NATION BY DECONSTRACTING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO PARTS OF GERMANY.

    THE GERMANS, HE WENT ON, WERE ONE ONLY BY REASON OF THEIR LANGUAGE AND THEIR HISTORY WITH ALL ITS SPLENDOUR AND MISERY. THEY WERE ALL AT HOME IN GERMANY, AND STILL HAD THE COMMON TASKS AND A COMMON RESPONSIBILITY -- TO ENSURE PEACE AMONG THEMSELVES AND IN EUROPE.

    TWENTY YEARS AFTER THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY, GERMANS MUST PREVENT ANY FURTHER ALIENATION OF THE TWO PARTS OF THE GERMAN NATION. THIS WAS NOT JUST A GERMAN INTEREST, BUT WAS ALSO OF IMPORTANCE FOR PEACE IN EUROPE AND FOR EAST-WEST RELATIONS, SAID HERR BRANDT.
