    Background: BRENNERS HOTEL IN BADEN-BADEN, THE WEST GERMAN SPA RESORT, WAS THE SCENE OF A MEETING BETWEEN DR ADENAUER AND PRESIDENT DE GAULLE, FEB 15.THE TWO LEADERS ARRIVED FOR THEIR TALKS DURING A HEAVY SNOW STORM.THE MAIN SUBJECT FOR DISCUSSION WAS THE SHAPE OF THE POLITICAL UNION WHICH THE SIX COMMON MARKET MEMBERS ARE TRYING TO CREATE.ALSO ON THE AGENDA WAS EAST-WEST RELATIONS AND DISARMAMENT.

    ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS FOR THE MEETING IS THAT THE SIX-POWER FOUCHET COMMITTEE WHICH HAS BEEN DISCUSSING EUROPEAN UNITY IS THOUGHT TO HAVE REACHED A DEADLOCK.THIS IS BECAUSE OF THE DIFFERENCE IN APPROACH BETWEEN FRANCE AND HER FIVE PARTNERS.THE FRENCH WANT EUROPEAN UNITY TO BE ON A BASIS OF AN ASSOCIATION OF SOVEREIGN STATES.THE OTHER FIVE COUNTRIES - GERMANY, ITALY, BELGIUM, HOLLAND AND LUXEMBURG - ARE PRESSING FOR SOME FORM OF POLITICAL INTEGRATION OR FEDERATION.

    AFTER THE MEETING WHICH LASTED ABOUT TWO-HOURS - AN HOUR LONGER THAN WAS EXPECTED - A COMMUNIQUE WAS ISSUED WHICH SAID: "THE TWO STATESMEN AGREED THAT GIVEN THE DANGERS WHICH THREATEN THE FREE WORLD THE BUILDING OF THE PLANNED ORGANISATION MUST BE SPEEDED UP." A GERMAN SPOKESMAN TOLD REPORTERS THAT A COMMON BASIS HAD BEEN FOUND WHICH WILL ALLOW THE FOUCHET COMMITTEE TO CONTINUE.
