  • Description

    Poland and East Germany agreed to strengthen their relations after a one-day visit to East Berlin by the new Polish Communist Party chief, Edward Gierek, and the Prime Minister, Andrei Jarsozewicz. They held talks with the East German Head of State, Walter Ulbricht, and the Prime Minister, Willi Stoph.

    The East German leaders were at East Berlin's main station to welcome the visitors on Monday (11 January). Later the two sides issued a communique stressing that the increased co-operation should be direct as well as within the framework of the Warsaw Pact military alliance and Comecon, the Communist Common Market.

    The leaders spoke of their conviction that greater co-operation among the Warsaw Pact countries was of great importance for the "world-wide fight against imperialism."
    The Polish delegation reported to the East Germans on developments in Poland since the recent disorders there which led to the resignation of the former party secretary, Wladyslaw Gomulka, and Prime Minister, Josef Cyrankiewicz.

    Complete unanimity of views was said to have been demonstrated in the talks.
