    Background: West German Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher invited African diplomats, accredited to Bonn to a symposium at Schloss Gymnich, a moated manor house, just outside Bonn on Wednesday (25 June).

    The two-hour meeting took place just a few days before Herr Genscher leaves for a week-long tour of Liberia, Ghana, Zambia and Malawi on Monday.

    A Foreign Ministry spokesman said the meeting served as a forum for views to be exchanged between Herr Genscher and African leaders during the trip. It was also held to strengthen contacts with African countries.

    The spokesman added that Herr Genscher wanted to put forward issues such as closer West German cooperation with regional African organisations such as the African Development Bank and the Organisation of African Unity (OAU).

    The West German minister was also interested in discussing the significance of the Lome Convention in the future African-European relations and the development of southern Africa.
