  • Description

    THE EAST GERMAN PARLIAMENT (VOLKSKAMMER) IN EAST BERLIN DISCUSSED ON SATURDAY (MARCH 20) PRIME MINISTER WILLI STOPH'S REPORT ON THE EAST-WEST GERMAN SUMMIT MEETING IN ERFURT ON THURSDAY.

    HERR STOPH HAD TOLD THE PARLIAMENT THAT HE ASKED WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR WILLY BRANDT TO STOP ALL ACTIVITY WHICH DISTURBS THE SITUATION IN AND AROUND BERLIN.

    AMONG SPEAKERS TO THE PARLIAMENT WAS THE PRESIDENT OF THE VOLKSKAMMER, GERALD GOETTING, AND THE AUDIENCE INCLUDED HERR STOPH AND THE EAST GERMAN LEADER HERR WALTER ULBRICHT.

    IN HIS REPORT TO THE VOLKSKAMMER HERR STOPH SAID THAT HIS TALKS WITH HERR BRANDT HAD BEEN USEFUL BUT HAD NOT ALTERED THE TWO SIDES'S OPPOSING VIEWS ON BASIC QUESTIONS. HE ADDED THAT THE FORTHCOMING FOUR-POWER TALKS ON BERLIN AND RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO GERMANYS WOULD BE GREATLY HELPED IF WEST GERMANY STOPPED "MISUSING" WEST BERLIN. ON FRIDAY, (MARCH 20) HERR ULBRICHT STATED THAT THE SUMMIT MEETING HAD BEEN USEFUL BUT SAID HE WAS DISAPPOINTED THAT HERR BRANDT WAS NOT YET PREPARED TO TALK ABOUT EQUAL RELATIONS UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW BETWEEN THE TWO GERMANYS.

    PRIME MINISTER STOPH HAS ARRANGED TO CONTINUE THE TALKS WITH CHANCELLOR BRANDT AT KASSEL IN WEST GERMANY ON MAY 21.
