  • Description

    OTTO WINZER, FOREIGN MINISTER OF THE GERMAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC IS VISITING THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC FOR TALKS WITH ARAB DIPLOMATS.

    HERR WINZER, WHO IS ACCOMPANIED BY A DELEGATION OF G.D.R. DIPLOMATS, MET U.A.R. FOREIGN MINISTER RIAD YESTERDAY (JUNE 7) AT THE U.A.R. FOREIGN MINISTRY IN GIZAH.

    THE VISIT FOLLOWS ONE BY HER WINZER TO SYRIA, DURING WHICH, IN JUNE 5, SYRIA ANNOUNCED THAT SHE WOULD GIVE FULL DIPLOMATIC RECOGNITION TO THE G.D.R. HE TOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE IN DAMASCUS IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT HE WAS OPTIMISTIC THAT MORE ARAB COUNTRIES WOULD RECOGNISE HIS COUNTRY. THE VISIT TO THE U.A.R. IS SEEN AS A POSSIBLE MOVE TOWARDS GAINING RECOGNITION THERE. IRAQ AND THE SUDAN HAVE ALREADY GRANTED DIPLOMATIC RECOGNITION TO THE G.D.R. - A MOVE WHICH PROMPTED THE FEDERAL GERMAN GOVERNMENT TO ANNOUNCE THAT THEIR ACTION HAS DESTROYED PROSPECTS OF RESUMING DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH THEM, BROKEN OFF IN 1965 WHEN FEDERAL GERMANY EXCHANGED AMBASSADORS WITH ISRAEL.
