  • Description

    The Deputy Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia, Crown Prince Fahd Ibn Abdulaziz, arrived in Bonn on Wednesday (21 June) for a three-day official visit to West Germany. West German government sources said the Prince's visit, regarded by officials in Bonn as a major political event, would be concerned mainly with world economic questions and Middle East peace prospects.

    SYNOPSIS: Shortly after arriving in the West German capital, the Prince began talks with Chancellor Helmut Schmidt at his official residence in Bonn. A spokesman later told reporters that Saudi Arabia had conditionally pledged to support the outcome of a summit conference -- to be held next month -- of the world's leading non-Communist nations. He said Crown Prince Fahd expressed the hope that the conference, in which economic issues will predominate, would bring positive results.

    The Prince's party included Saudi Finance Minister Abe Al Khail, who called on Foreign Minister Hans Dietrich Genscher. The West German government considers Saudi Arabia a major moderating influence in the third world, and has praised its campaign against any oil price increases this year. It also believes Saudi Arabia's moderate oil policy has helped reduce disruption on the world's foreign exchange markets.
