  • Description

    WEST GERMANY'S FOREIGN MINISTER, DR. GERHARD SCHROEDER, ARRIVED IN LONDON TODAY (FRIDAY) FOR TALKS WITH THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER AND HIS ENGLISH COUNTERPART, FOREIGN SECRETARY PATRICK GORDON WALKER.

    DR. SCHROEDER AND MR. GORDON WALKER LATER SPENT TWO HOURS DISCUSSING THE BRITISH PROPOSALS FOR NATO NUCLEAR DEFENCE AND THE FOREIGN EXCHANGE COSTS OF THE BRITISH ARMY OF THE RHINE. AT A PRESS CONFERENCE, SPOKESMEN SAID THAT THE BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY HAD GIVEN DR. SCHROEDER AN ACCOUNT OF MR. WILSON'S AND HIS TALKS WITH PRESIDENT JOHNSON IN WASHINGTON EARLIER THIS WEEK.

    A STUDY PAPER ON THE BRITISH SUGGESTIONS TO PRESIDENT JOHNSON HAD BEEN GIVEN TO DR. SCHROEDER. THESE PROPOSALS, SAID THE WEST GERMAN SPOKESMAN, WOULD BE CAREFULLY STUDIED, ADDING THAT EVERYONE FELT IT WOULD BE USEFUL TO GO AHEAD SWIFTLY IN THE DISCUSSIONS. THE FOREIGN MINISTERS WOULD BE MEETING AGAIN IN PARIS NEXT WEEK DURING THE MINISTERIAL COUNCIL SESSION OF NATO WHEN THE CONSIDERED VIEWS OF BOTH GOVERNMENTS COULD AGAIN BE PUT FORWARD.

    THE BONN GOVERNMENT, SAID DR. SCHROEDER, ALSO WANTED TO EMPHASISE THAT THEY WERE SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING WHAT COULD BE DONE TO EASE THE DIFFICULTIES OF THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT IN OFF-SETTING FOREIGN EXCHANGE COSTS OF THE BRITISH MILITARY FORCES IN WEST GERMANY.

    SPEAKING TO REPORTERS WHEN ARRIVING FOR A WEEKEND AT MR. GORDON WALKER'S OFFICIAL COUNTRY HOME, DR. SCHROEDER SAID:"OUR INTENTION IS TO CO-OPERATE IN A MULTI-LATERAL FORCE". THE TASK AS HE SAW IT WAS TO COMBINE IDEAS AND PROPOSALS. " THAT IS THE DIPLOMATIC TASK." HE SAID.

    IN BONN TONIGHT, A MINISTRY STATEMENT SAID DURING THE VISIT OF THE FEDERAL FOREIGN MINISTERS SCHROEDER IN LONDON, IT WAS AGREED THAT THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, HAROLD WILSON, WILL MAKE A VISIT TO BONN IN JANUARY, 1965. THE EXACT DATE HAS NOT YET BEEN FIXED.
