  • Description

    DR. KONRAD ADENAUER ARRIVED IN PARIS TONIGHT (SUNDAY) FOR UNOFFICIAL TALKS WITH PRESIDENT DE GAULLE ON FRANCO-GERMAN RELATIONS COVERING TWO CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES -- A COMMON AGRICULTURAL POLICY, AND THE PLANNED NATO NUCLEAR FORCE.

    THE FORMER WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR IS VISITING PARIS PRIVATELY TO BE MADE AN HONORARY MEMBER OF THE FRENCH ACADEMY OF MORAL AND POLITICAL SCIENCES -- ONLY THE THIRD FOREIGNER, AFTER SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL AND PRESIDENT EISENHOWER, TO BE SO HONOURED.

    DR. ADENAUER WAS ACCOMPANIED ON THE FLIGHT FROM GERMANY BY MEMBERS OF HIS PERSONAL STAFF AND SEVERAL MEMBERS OF THIS FAMILY. HE WAS WELCOMED AT ORLY AIRPORT BY HERR MANFRED KLAIBER, THE WEST GERMAN AMBASSADOR TO FRANCE, AND DR. HEINRICH KRONE, THE WEST GERMAN MINISTERS FOR SPECIAL TASKS.

    IN AN AIRPORT INTERVIEW, DR. ADENAUER TOLD REPORTERS: "I SHALL BE HAVING POLITICAL TALKS HERE, AND IT IS A GOOD THING THAT POLITICAL TALKS BETWEEN FRANCE AND GERMANY CAN TAKE PLACE AGAIN. IN THE PAST, ALL MY EFFORTS HAVE BEEN DIRECTED AT STRENGTHENING FRANCO-GERMAN RELATIONS, AND MY WISH TODAY IS TO CONTINUE TO DO SO."
    HIS SUCCESSOR AS CHANCELLOR, DR. ERHARD, SAID IN BONN EARLIER THIS WEEK, THAT 88-YEAR-OLD DR. ADENAUER HAD NO DIPLOMATIC MISSION IN PARIS, ALTHOUGH HE HOPED THAT DR. ADENAUER'S PERSONAL FRIENDSHIP WITH THE FRENCH PRESIDENT COULD BE USE TO SMOOTH THE "SOMEWHAT TROUBLED WATERS" BETWEEN FRANCE AND THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC.

    DR. ADENAUER IS TO HAVE TALKS WITH PRESIDENT DE GAULLE ON MONDAY, AND WILL BE GUEST OF HONOUR AT A SPECIAL LUNCHEON GIVEN BY THE FRENCH PRESIDENT.
