  • Description

    Common Market Foreign Ministers meeting in Brussels on Monday (September 20) agreed for the need to avoid a trade clash with the United States. They met to discuss the implications of President Nixon's economic reforms last month (August), and finally decided to wait for further developments before taking any action.

    SYNOPSIS: Common Market Foreign Ministers meeting in Brussels on Monday agreed on the need to avoid any trade clash with the United States following President Nixon's sweeping economic reforms last month.

    Italian Foreign Minister Aldo Moro, who presided over the meeting--on the left, talking to Belgian Foreign Minister Pierre Harmel--said afterwards that all six Market members agreed not to take any trade reprisals against the United States.

    The Ministers--West German delegate Sigismund von Braun talking to Pierre Harmel--also agreed that any measures to compensate Common Market industries which suffer from U.S. moves should be temporary, and taken only at community and not national level.

    French Foreign Minister Maurice Schumann told the meeting that Monday's talks could add little useful to a similar meeting held last week. The ministers finally decided to adopt a "wait and see" policy.
