  • Description

    Willie Brandt, West Berlin mayor, visited the White House Washington for consultations with President Eisenhower, Feb 11. Brandt was with the President for 30 minutes.

    Mr. Eisenhower assured Willie brandt the United States was determine "to defend the people to Free Berlin against any effort to destroy their freedom." Also, "No communist threat whatsoever shall deter the United States from the discharge of its responsibilities to the people of Berlin. The United States will not be pushed out of Free Berlin."
    Willie Brandt said of his consultations with President Eisenhower, "I had the feeling that I was talking to my father when he was in a good mood."
    In the Western Powers' draft reply to Russia's Jan 10 Note on Berlin and Germany - and at present before NATO Council, Paris - it is made clear that any Foreign Ministers' meeting with Russia must deal with Germany as a whole and not with one aspect of the situation - Berlin.

    Mayor Brandt is on a four week American and Asia tour. He goes to Canada shortly and then on to Japan and India, canvassing for support of West Germany's attitude to the Berlin question.
