  • Description

    THE UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF STATE, MR. DEAN RUSK, HAS BEEN HAVING A SERIES OF MEETINGS SINCE THE RENEWED TENSION IN BERLIN. EAST GERMANY HAS INTRODUCED A VISA SYSTEM FOR WEST GERMANS TRAVELLING BY ROAD TO WEST BERLIN.

    MR. RUSK MADE A SURPRISE VISIT TO THE UNITED NATIONS FIRST AND HAD A BRIEF MEETING WITH THE SECRETARY GENERAL, U THANT.

    FOLLOWING THIS MEETING HE WENT TO THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE SOVIET MISSION TO THE UNITED NATIONS, ACCOMPANIED BY THE AMERICAN AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N., MR. ARTHUR GOLDBERG.

    IT'S REPORTED THAT MR. RUSK AND THE SOVIET DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER, VASILY KUZNETSOV, HAD A WORKING LUNCH. A STATE DEPARTMENT SPOKESMAN SAID THAT THE SUBJECT OF BERLIN WAS LIKELY TO BE DISCUSSED, BUT EMPHASISED THAT THE LUNCHEON WAS NOT ARRANGED BECAUSE OF IT.

    EAST GERMANY NOW REQUIRED WEST GERMANS TO FILL IN A "TRANSIT VISA" FORD AND PAY FIVE MARKS TO TRAVEL OVERLAND TO THE DIVIDED CITY. TRANSIT TAKES HAVE ALSO BEEN APPLIED TO FREIGHT AND THE SITUATION IS REGARDED IN BONN AS THE GRAVEST SINCE 1961 WHEN THE BERLIN WALL WENT UP.
