  • Description

    WEST GERMAN MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT BEGAN FOUR DAYS OF COMMITTEE MEETINGS AT THE REICHSTAG IN WEST BERLIN YESTERDAY (MONDAY) IN THE FACE OF PROTESTS FROM EAST GERMANY WHO HAD CLAIMED THEIR PRESENCE IN WEST BERLIN AS PROVOCATIVE.

    HOWEVER, DESPITE THE PROTEST, EAST GERMAN OFFICIALS ALMOST IGNORED THE OPENING MEETING AT THE REICHSTAG. THE ONLY REACTION CAME FROM AN EAST GERMAN NEWSPAPER WHICH SAID THE WEST GERMAN POLITICIANS WERE PLAYING A DANGEROUS GAME.

    WHEN THE WEST GERMAN BUNDESTAG (LOWER HOUSE) HELD A PLENARY SESSION IN WEST BERLIN IN APRIL OF LAST YEAR EAST GERMANY REACTED THEN BY OBSTRUCTING THE CITY'S COMMUNICATIONS WITH WEST GERMANY.

    ABOUT FIVE HUNDRED WEST GERMAN DEPUTIES AND OFFICIALS ARE MEETING AT THE REICHSTAG.

    EAST GERMANY HAS REJECTED THE CLAIM BY THE BONN GOVERNMENT THAT WEST BERLIN IS PART OF WEST GERMANY, AND THAT MEMBERS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ARE ENTITLED TO MEET THERE.
