  • Description

    BRITAIN'S FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. PATRICK GORDON WALKER, HAS OUTLINED TO THE WEST GERMAN GOVERNMENT HIS GOVERNMENT'S VIEWS ON THE PROPOSED NATO MULTILATERAL NUCLEAR FORCE. IN TODAY'S TALK WITH HERR GERHARD SCHROEDER, THE WEST GERMAN FOREIGN MINSTER, IN BONN MR. GORDON WALKER ADDED THAT BRITAIN WILL SUBMIT ITS PROPOSALS TO ALL THE NATO COUNTRIES.

    BOTH SIDES REFUSED TO GIVE ANY DETAILS OF THE NEW BRITISH PROPOSALS. BUT, THE GERMAN POSITION, OFFICIALLY STATED BY THE FOREIGN MINISTRY IN BONN THIS EVENING, IS THAT AS THE BRITISH VIEWS ARE STILL TENTATIVE NO GERMAN REACTION CAN BE EXPECTED AT THIS STAGE. HERR VON HASE, STATE SECRETARY OF THE FEDERAL PRESS OFFICE, SAID THEY HAD TO BE DISCUSSED AND STUDIED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. HE SAID BONN APPRECIATED THE LABOUR GOVERNMENT'S NEED FOR TIME TO WORK OUT ITS IDEAS, BUT HOPED THERE WOULD BE NO UNNECESSARY DELAYS.

    TOMORROW, (MONDAY) MR. GORDON WALKER WILL TAKE PART IN A MINISTERIAL MEETING OF THE COUNCIL OF WESTERN EUROPEAN UNION, WHICH INCLUDES BRITAIN AND THE COMMON MARKET SIX. THE FRENCH FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. COUVE DE MURVILLE, WHOM MR. GORDON WALKER HAD ALSO HOPED TO SEE IN BONN, IS STAYING AWAY FROM THE W.E.U. MEETING.

    THE SOVIET UNION LAST NIGHT (SATURDAY) ATTACKED THE WESTERN PLAN FOR A MULTILATERAL NUCLEAR FORCE AND WARNED THAT IT WOULD TAKE COUNTER-MEASURES TO UNSURE THE SECURITY OF THE COMMUNIST WORLD IF THE PROJECTED NATO FORCE WERE SET UP.

    THE STATEMENT, ISSUED BY TASS, THE RUSSIAN NEWS AGENCY, DESCRIBED M.L.F. AS A BID BY WEST GERMAN "REVENGE-SEEKERS" TO GAIN ACCESS TO NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

    THE STATEMENT CONTINUED: :FRENCH STATESMEN RECENTLY DECLARED MORE THAN ONCE THAT THEY FLATLY OBJECT TO THE FORCE WHOSE ESTABLISHMENT, IN THEIR OPINION, IS DIRECTED AGAINST FRANCE TOO."
    IT WAS ANNOUNCED TODAY THAT DR. SCHROEDER WILL VISIT LONDON ON DECEMBER 11. THE VISIT IS TIMED TO COME IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE VISIT BY MR. WILSON, THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, TO WASHINGTON AND BEFORE THE NORTH ATLANTIC COUNCIL MEETING IN PARIS.
