    Background: East German leader Erich Honecker arrived in Austria on Monday (10 November) on his first ever official visit to a Western country. According to Austrian officials, his talks with Austrian leaders are expected to focus on the crisis in relations between the two German states and the East-West dispute over the agenda of the European Security Conference being held in Madrid.

    SYNOPSIS: The East German leader was welcomed at the airport by Austrian President Rudolf Kirchschlaeger and Chancellor Bruno Kreisky amid tight security. Elite anti-terrorist troops, some with dogs, surrounded Mr. Honecker's aircraft, and police were stationed all round the airport.

    Mr. Honecker told Austrian journalists last week that he expected tensions between East and West Germany to be the major topic of discussion during his four-day visit. He will also take the opportunity to sign a new ten-year trade agreement with Austria.
