  • Description

    WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR WILLY BRANDT DREW A SOBER BUT BASICALLY OPTIMISTIC PICTURE WHEN HE REPORTED TO PARLIAMENT IN BONN TODAY (FRIDAY) ON HIS TALKS WITH EAST GERMAN PREMIER WILLI STOPH. THE TWO MEN MET YESTERDAY IN WHAT WAS THE FIRST SUMMIT TALKS HELD BETWEEN THE NATIONS SINCE GERMANY WAS DIVIDED AFTER THE SECOND WORLD WAR.

    SEVERAL HUNDRED PEOPLE BRAVED A BITTERLY COLD FRIDAY MORNING TO GREET MR BRANDT WHEN HIS TRAIN ARRIVED IN BREDA, CLOSE TO THE EAST GERMAN FRONTIER. HE WAS IN HAPPY MOOD AS HE LEFT THE TRAIN FOR A SHORT JOURNEY TO A TELEVISION STUDIO WHERE HE SPOKE ON THE SUMMIT. THE PEOPLE CHEERED WHEN HE ARRIVED BACK AT THE STATION TO CONTINUE HIS JOURNEY TO BONN.

    SPEAKING TO THE WEST GERMAN BUNDESTAG HE SAID THAT THE JOURNEY TO ERFURT...WHERE THE SUMMIT TALKS WERE HELD...WAS RIGHT, NECESSARY AND USEFUL. MR BRANDT SAID THAT IT WAS NOW MORE POSSIBLE THAN EVER THAT PRACTICAL RESULTS COULD BE REACHED AND THAT A GRADUAL EASING OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE GERMAN DIVISION WAS THINKABLE. BUT HE MADE CLEAR THAT THE TWO GERMAN STATES WERE STILL DEEPLY DIVIDED ON ISSUE OF PRINCIPLE.
