  • Description

    HERR GEORGE FEDERER, WEST GERMYUANY'S AMBASSADOR TO CAIRO, FLEW INTO BONN TODAY (TUESDAY) FOR TALKS ON STRAINED RELATIONS BETWEEN WEST GERMANY AND THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC.HE WAS RECALLED TO REPORT ON THE FORTHCOMING VISIT OF HERR WALTER ULBRICHT, THE EAST GERMAN HEAD-OF-STATE, TO THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC.

    THE BONN GOVERNMENT HAS TAKEN A SERIOUS VIEW OF THE VISIT FEARING THAT IT MIGHT BE A PRELUDE TO RECOGNITION OF EAST GERMANY BY THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC.WEST GERMANY REGARDS ITSELF AS THE ONLY LEGAL GERMAN STATE AND REFUSES TO HAVE DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH COUNTRIES, EXCEPT THE SOVIET UNION, WHICH HAVE RECOGNISED THE EAST GERMAN GOVERNMENT.

    ON SUNDAY, HERR FEDERER WAS RECEIVED BY PRESIDENT NASSER FOR A DISCUSSION ON THE VISIT.NO STATEMENT WAS ISSUED, BUT ON HIS ARRIVAL IN DUESSELDORF TODAY HERR FEDERER TOLD REPORTERS THAT IN HIS VIEW THE VISIT WOULD BE CARRIED OUT.HOWEVER, HE REFUSED TO ENLARGE ON THAT AND LEFT IMMEDIATELY TO REPORT TO CHANCELLOR ERHARD AND THE WEST GERMAN FOREIGN MINISTER, HERR SCHROEDER.

    IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT HERR FEDERER WILL REMAIN IN BONN UNTIL THE VISIT OF HERR ULBRICHT TO THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC IS OVER.

    THE WEST GERMAN GOVERNMENT WARNED THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC THAT THE VISIT MIGHT AFFECT RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES.THIS WOULD INCLUDE WEST GERMAN AID TO THE U.A.R., WHICH IN RECENT YEARS HAS AMOUNTED TO GBP70 MILLION POUNDS STERLING IN CREDITS AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE.THE POSSIBILITY OF SERERING DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS HAS ALSO BEEN MENTIONED, BUT OFFICIALS IN BONN SAY THIS COULD BE AVOIDED IF THE U.A.R.DOES NOT EXTEND FULL DIPLOMATIC RECOGNITION TO EAST GERMANY.

    (THE INVITATION TO HERR ULBRICHT TO VISIT THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC IS THOUGHT TO BE A REACTION AGAINST SECRET WEST GERMAN MILITARY AID TO ISRAEL.UNDER THE TERMS OF AN AGREEMENT RELEASED LATE LAST MONTH, WEST GERMANY IS GIVING ISRAEL MODERN ARMS.INCLUDING SUBMARINES, TANKS, ANTI-AIRCRAFT GUNS AND HELICOPTERS WORTH GBP30 MILLION STERLING.
