    Background: WEST GERMANY'S RELATIONS WITH COMMUNIST EASTERN EUROPE ENTERED A NEW ERA TODAY (TUESDAY) WITH THE COMPLETION OF ARRANGEMENTS TO EXCHANGE AMBASSADORS WITH RUMANIA. THE ESTABLISHMENT OF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WAS SEALED WITH A HANDSHAKE BETWEEN THE RUMANIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, MR CORNELIU MANESCU, AND HIS WEST GERMAN COUNTERPART, HERR WILLY BRANDT.

    MR MANESCU, WHO ARRIVED IN BONN YESTERDAY FOR A FIVE-DAY VISIT, IS THE FIRST EASTERN EUROPEAN FOREIGN MINISTER TO COME TO WEST GERMANY. THE ESTABLISHMENT OF RELATIONS WAS FORMALLY ANNOUNCED IN A JOINT COMMUNIQUE, FOLLOWING TALKS EARLIER TODAY BETWEEN MR MANESCU AND THE WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR, DR KURT KIESINGER. RUMANIA THUS BECOMES THE FIRST EASTERN EUROPEAN COUNTRY -- APART FROM THE SOVIET UNION -- WITH WHICH WEST GERMANY HAS HAD DIPLOMATIC TIES SINCE IT BROKE OFF RELATIONS WITH YUGOSLAVIA IN 1957.

    THE COMMUNIQUE SAID HERR BRANDT HAS ACCEPTED AN INVITATION TO VISIT RUMANIA AT A DATE NOT YET FIXED.
