  • Description

    West German and Polish negotiators were reported to be making slow progress today (Friday) in formulating a treaty to normalise relations between the two countries. A spokesman for the West German government said differences remained on the wording of part of the treaty and related issues not covered by the proposed agreement.

    The West German delegation said that points still undecided included West German legal reservations on a final settlement of poland's post-war western boundary, and West german requests for easier emigration for german-born Poles who want to join family members.

    The major portion of the negotiations rests on a polish demand that West Germany recognises the frontier along the Oder and Neisse rivers -- a post war boundary that gave Poland large areas of pre-war German Territory.

    The foreign ministers of the two countries -- Herr Walter Scheel, of West Germany, and Stefan Jedrychowski, of Poland -- conferred for two hours today, and their discussions were reported to have been frank and business-like, leading to some progress on 'humanitarian problems'.
