  • Description

    WEST GERMAN PRESIDENT DR HEINRICH LUEBKE AND HIS WIFE WILHELMINE, ACCOMPANIED BY WEST GERMAN FOREIGN MINISTER DR SCHROEDER AND OTHER OFFICIALS, ARRIVED BY RAIL IN VIENNA, MAR 27, FOR A THREE-DAY STATE VISIT.

    DR LUEBKE AND HIS PARTY WERE WELCOMED AT THE STATION BY AUSTRIAN PRESIDENT DR SCHAERF AND HIS DAUGHTER, AND RECEIVED ALL MILITARY HONOURS.

    LATER, DR LUEBKE PAID HIS FIRST OFFICIAL CALL AT THE AUSTRIAN PRESIDENTIAL OFFICE IN THE BALLHAUSPLATZ.

    THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT A HEAD OF THE GERMAN STATE HAS VISITED AUSTRIA SINCE THE KAISER CAME TO VIENNA IN 1908, NOT TO MENTION HITLER'S APPEARANCE IN THE AUSTRIAN CAPITAL ON MAR 12, 1938, THE DAY OF AUSTRIA'S INTEGRATION IN THE THIRD REICH WHOSE AFTER-EFFECTS HAVE LEFT POST-WAR RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES IN A CONDITION OF RATHER DELICATE BALANCE.

    SINCE THE QUESTIONS OF AUSTRIAN PROPERTY CLAIMS WAS SETTLED LAST YEAR AND THERE ARE NO OUTSTANDING PROBLEMS, OBSERVERS BELIEVE THAT TALKS BETWEEN GUEST AND HOST, AND THEIR MINISTERS, WILL CONCERN MAINLY EUROPE ECONOMIC INTEGRATION AND THE DIFFICULTIES OF AN AUSTRIAN ASSOCIATION WITH THE COMMON MARKET. IN ANY NEGOTIATION WITH THE SIX, AUSTRIA HAS TO SAFEGUARD HER SPECIAL POSITION AS A NEUTRAL STATE. THERE ARE INDICATIONS THAT THE SOVIET UNION NIGHT BE INCLINED TO VIEW COMMON MARKET MEMBERSHIP AS A BREACH OF THE AUSTRIAN STATE TREATY.
