    Background: Dr. von Brentano, West German Minister for Foreign Affairs, flew into Dublin May 30 on a two-day official visit to the Irish Republic - the first by a German minister since the Irish state was established. He was greeted by Mr. Frank Aiken, External Affairs Minister for Eire, and the West German Ambassador to Eire, Dr. Reifferscheidt.

    Flanked by a motorcycle escort, Dr. Brentano drove from the airport to meet President Eamon de Valera at his residence. Later, Dr. Brentano called on the Lord Mayor of Dublin and Mr. Sean Lemass, Prime Minister of the Irish Republic.

    Dr. Brentano told reporters that he felt honoured to be the first German minister to set foot on the soil of a free, independent Ireland. Dr. Brentano, who attended the assembly of the Western European Union in London before coming to Dublin, will remain in Eire for a few days after his official visit to holiday in Killarney.
