  • Description

    Herr Von Brentano, former West German foreign minister, and now leader of the Christian Democratic Union Party in the West German Sundestag, discussed the North Atlantic Alliance, Britains entry into the European Economic Community and United States-West German relations with Mr. Kennedy.

    After his meeting with the President in Mr. Kennedy's office, Herr Von Brentano spoke to reporters outside the White House. He said that he and Mr. Kennedy had discussed the continuation of present European policy, that the west should not be discouraged over France's veto of Britain's entry into the E.E.C. and that the west must continue its strong determination to increase the solidarity of the free world. He added that Mr. Kennedy will get an enthusiastic welcome when he visits West Germany and Berlin, not only from West Germans, but East German as well.

    Later at a meeting of the National Press Club in Washington, he said that Germany supports the multilateral nuclear force proposal of the United States, NATO and the Germany will press to secure Britain's entry into Common Market.

    The film shows Herr Von Brentano and Mr. Kennedy in the President's office, Von Brentano leaving and then speaking in German about his meeting with President Kennedy.
