  • Description

    THE RUMANIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, MR CORNELIU MANESCU, TODAY (MONDAY) BECAME THE FIRST EST EUROPEAN FOREIGN MINISTER TO VISIT WEST GERMANY SINCE THE SECOND WORLD WAR. HE ARRIVED BY AIR FROM BUCHAREST FOR A FIVE-DAY STAY WHICH IS EXPECTED TO RESULT IN AN OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT THAT WEST GERMANY AND RUMANIA WILL EXCHANGE AMBASSADORS.

    MR MANESCU'S VISIT COINCIDES WITH A MAJOR BONN DRIVE TO NORMALISE RELATIONS WITH AS MANY EAST EUROPEAN COUNTRIES AS POSSIBLE. HIS ARRIVAL WAS PRECEDED BY A SCATHING SOVIET ATTACK ON WEST GERMANY -- THE KREMLIN'S HARDEST-HITTING OFFICIAL ATTACK AGAINST ANY WESTERN COUNTRY FOR SEVERAL MONTHS. BUT OBSERVERS DID NOT EXPECT THAT PLANS FOR BONN-BUCHAREST DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WOULD BE AFFECTED.

    WHILE IN BONN, MR MANESCU IS SCHEDULED TO HAVE TALKS WITH FOREIGN MINISTER WILLY BRANDT. HE WILL ALSO MEET CHANCELLOR KURT-GEORGE KIESINGER.

    RUMANIA WILL BE THE FIRST COMMUNIST EAST EUROPEAN COUNTRY -- EXCEPT THE SOVIET UNION -- TO HAVE DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH WEST GERMANY SINCE 1957, WHEN BONN BROKE WITH YUGOSLAVIA OVER ITS RECOGNITION OF EAST GERMANY.

    IN AN EXCHANGE OF SPEECHES AT THE AIRPORT HERR BRANDT AND MR MANESCU EACH SAID THEIR TALKS SHOULD HELP RELAX TENSION AND SAFEGUARD PEACE IN EUROPE. ECONOMIC, CULTURAL AND DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED ON THE BASIS OF MUTUAL RESPECT, MR MANESCU SAID.
