    TRANSCRIPT: BRANDT: WELL, THAT'S WHY REALLY WE HAVE ASKED EXPERTS FROM BOTH SIDES -- FROM THE BRITISH LABOUR PARTY AND FROM THE GERMAN SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY - TO MAKE A STUDY; SOME OF US ARE A LITTLE CONFUSED BECAUSE THE WORD 'DISENGAGEMENT' HAS BEEN USED FOR ALL KINDS OF PLANS, AND IT JUST DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING TO USE THE WORD 'DISENGAGEMENT'. BUT WE AGREE - MR. WILSON AND I - THAT THERE MUST BE NO VACUUM IN CENTRAL EUROPE, AND THAT , OF COURSE, THERE MUST BE NO UNILATERAL WEAKENING IN THE POSITION OF THE WEST.
