  • Description

    THE WEST GERMAN AMBASSADOR TO WASHINGTON, HERR WILHELM GREWE, CALLED ON PRESIDENT KENNEDY AT THE WHITE HOUSE, AUG. 30, TO DELIVER A LETTER FROM DR. ADENAUER, THE WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR. HERR GREWE BROUGHT THE LETTER BACK FROM BONN, WHERE HE HAD SPENT TWO DAYS IN CONFERENCE WITH THE CHANCELLOR AND OTHER WEST GERMAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS.

    AFTER HIS THIRTY MINUTE MEETING WITH THE PRESIDENT, AMBASSADOR GREWE DECLINED TO DISCLOSE ANY DETAILS OF THE LETTER, BUT SAID THERE WAS COMPLETE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CONTENTS OF THE LETTER AND THE PRESIDENT'S AIMS. ACKNOWLEDGING THAT THERE HAD BEEN CRITICISM IN WESTERN GERMANY OF CHANCELLOR ADENAUER'S POLICIES, HERR GREWE SAID HE THOUGHT THE CRITICS WERE IN THE MINORITY. HE DISCOUNTED THE IDEA THAT FURTHER WESTERN SETBACKS IN THE BERLIN SITUATION MIGHT PUT WESTERN GERMANY IN A NEUTRALIST MOOD. HE SAID THAT THE WESTERN GERMANS ARE PRIMARILY CONCERNED ABOUT HOW TO DEFEND THEIR POSITION, WHICH IS THE POSITION OF THE WEST.
