  • Description

    REPRESENTATIVES OF THE BRITISH, WEST GERMAN, AND AMERICAN GOVERNMENTS RESUMED THEIR TALKS IN LONDON (FRIDAY) TO CONSIDER BRITAIN'S WARNING THAT SHE MIGHT MAKE MASSIVE TROOP WITHDRAWALS FROM GERMANY IF HER FULL FOREIGN EXCHANGE COSTS ARE NOT MET. A FIRM FROM BONN IS SOUGHT BY EARLY MAY.

    THE PROTRACTED TALKS ON THE FINANCING OF BRITISH AND U.S. TROOPS IN GERMANY RESUMED IN LONDON LAST MONDAY, BUT WERE ADJOURNED AFTER REPORTED DIFFICULTIES BETWEEN THE CHIEF BRITISH NEGOTIATOR, MR GEORGE THOMSON, AND THE WEST GERMAN NEGOTIATOR, HERR GEORG DUCKWITZ. ALSO AT TODAY'S MEETING WAS THE UNITED STATES NEGOTIATOR, MR JOHN McCLOY, WHO HAS JUST RETURNED FROM TALKS IN WASHINGTON.

    BONN HAS SAID IT IS UNABLE TO MEET THE FULL FOREIGN EXCHANGE COSTS OF THE 59,000 BRITISH FORCES IN GERMANY, GBP94,000,000 (STERLING) A YEAR. THE UNITED STATES HAS HELPED TO DELAY A DECISION ON WITHDRAWALS BY PROMISING TO MAKE AN ADDITIONAL GBP12,500,000(STERLING) ARMS PURCHASES IN BRITAIN, BUT THE BRITISH REPRESENTATIVES ARE SEEKING CLARIFICATION ON WHAT BONN IS ACTUALLY PREPARED TO PAY.

    THE WEST GERMANY GOVERNMENT HAS OFFERED CIVIL PURCHASES IN BRITAIN WORK GBP22,700,000 (STERLING) IN THE NEXT FINANCIAL YEAR, BUT BRITAIN IS ANXIOUS THAT SUCH PURCHASES SHOULD NOT BE MADE AT THE EXPENSE OF MILITARY PURCHASES TO NARROW THE OFFSET GAP.

    BRITISH OFFICIALS HOPE THE PRESENT SESSION MAY END TONIGHT, BUT SAY TALKS MAY CONTINUE TOMORROW IF NECESSARY.
