  • Description

    THE UNITED STATES, WEST GERMANY, AND BRITAIN TODAY REACHED AGREEMENT ABOUT THE FINANCING OF BRITISH FORCES IN GERMANY, SUBJECT OF THE TWO-DAY LONDON TALKS BETWEEN REPRESENTATIVES OF THE THREE COUNTRIES.

    THE AGREEMENT WILL HELP BRITAIN MEET ABOUT GBP72 MILLION STERLING OF HER GBP82 MILLION STERLING FOREIGN EXCHANGE BILL FOR MAINTAINING HER FORCES IN GERMANY. WEST GERMANY IS EXPECTED TO CONTRIBUTE ABOUT GBP49 MILLION STERLING AND THE UNITED STATES ABOUT GBP20 MILLION STERLING UNDER THE NEW AGREEMENT. BRITISH ECONOMIES WILL AMOUNT TO SOME GBP3 MILLION STERLING.

    HOWEVER, THIS STILL LEAVES A GBP10 MILLION STERLING GAP IN THE FOREIGN EXCHANGE, AND BRITAIN IS EXPECTED TO WITHDRAW ABOUT FIVE THOUSAND MEN FROM HER 59 THOUSAND FORCES IN GERMANY DURING THE FIRST QUARTER OF NEXT YEAR. HOWEVER, BRITAIN WILL CONSULT THE WESTERN EUROPEAN UNION AND NATO BEFORE WITHDRAWING THESE FORCES.

    AN OFFICIAL COMMUNIQUE, GAVE NO DETAILS OF THE AGREEMENT REACHED. THE THREE REPRESENTATIVES -- MR. JOHN McCLOY FOR THE UNITED STATES, HERR GEORGE DUCKWITZ FOR WEST GERMANY, AND MR. GEORGE THOMSON, BRITISH DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER -- WILL NOW TRANSMIT THEIR PROPOSALS TO THEIR GOVERNMENTS, AND THENCE TO THE OTHER ALLIES.
