  • Description

    FOREIGN MINISTERS OF THE SIX COMMON MARKET COUNTRIES MET AT THE QUAI D'ORSAY IN PARIS, FRANCE, APR 17 TO TRY TO REACH AGREEMENT ON A POLITICALLY UNITED EUROPE. DEADLOCK OVER UNITY STEMS MAINLY FROM DISAGREEMENT BETWEEN FRANCE AND HER PARTNERS.

    PRESIDENT DE GAULLE FAVOURS A LOOSE POLITICAL CONFEDERATION OF FULLY SOVEREIGN STATES; THE NETHERLANDS AND BELGIUM WANT A CLOSELY INTEGRATED UNION; AND WEST GERMANY AND ITALY TAKE A HALF-WAY STAND. THE QUESTION OF UNITY HAS APPEARED ON THE AGENDA AT VARIOUS MEETINGS OF MINISTERS OF THE "SIX" - BUT SO FAR WITHOUT ANY FIRM POLICY BEING FORMULATED.

    THE MINISTERS REVIEWED CURRENT NEGOTIATIONS ON BRITAIN'S APPLICATION FOR MEMBERSHIP OF THE COMMON MARKET. THE DUTCH HAVE INSISTED THAT BRITAIN SHOULD BE A MEMBER BEFORE ANY AGREEMENT ON UNITY IS REACHED.

    OTHER ITEMS DISCUSSED INCLUDED THE EAST-WEST STAND ON BERLIN AND PREPARATIONS FOR THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANISATION MINISTERIAL COUNCIL SESSION IN ATHENS, GREECE, MAY 3.
