  • Description

    LATE ON DECEMBER 15, THE FOREIGN MINISTERS OF THE SIX COMMON MARKET COUNTRIES MET AT THE QAI D'ORSAY IN PARIS TO DISCUSS PROPOSALS FOR A POLITICAL UNION OF THE SIX.

    FRENCH PROPOSALS, SUPPORTED BY WEST GERMANY, FOR A DRAFT TREATY SETTING UP A POLITICAL ORGANISATION WERE COMPILED BY A SIX-NATION WORKING GROUP LAST NOVEMBER AND MADE PUBLIC AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS MONTH.

    BEFORE THE MINISTERS CAN GET DOWN TO CONSIDERING THE DETAILS, AND NEW PROPOSALS THAT HAVE COME FROM VARIOUS MEMBERS OF THE SIX, THE QUESTION OF WHETHER BRITAIN SHOULD BE BROUGHT INTO THE DISCUSSIONS WILL HAVE TO BE THRASHED OUT. MR. HEATH, THE LORD PRIVY SEAL, HAS ALREADY INDICATED THAT BRITAIN WOULD BE CONTENT TO JOIN IN ON THE POLITICAL SIDE AFTER HER PRESENT NEGOTIATIONS FOR MEMBERSHIP OF THE COMMON MARKET HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO A SUCCESSFUL END.

    NO OFFICIAL STATEMENT WAS ISSUED ON CONCLUSIONS REACHED BY THE MINISTERS IN THEIR DEC 17 TALKS.
