  • Description

    MR. ABBA EBAN, ISRAEL'S FOREIGN MINISTER, BEGAN TALKS IN BONN TODAY (MONDAY) ON CONSOLIDATING RELATIONS BETWEEN HIS COUNTRY AND GERMANY. HE IS THE FIRST ISRAELI MINISTER EVER TO VISIT GERMANY, AND STRICT SECURITY MEASURES HAVE BEEN TAKEN TO PROTECT HIM FROM ACTION BY ARAB EXTREMISTS.

    MR. EBAN FLEW TO BONN YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) AFTER VISITING THE FORMER NAZI CONCENTRATION CAMP AT DACHAU, NEAR MUNICH. HIS FIRST CALL TODAY WAS ON WEST GERMAN FOREIGN MINISTER WALTER SCHEEL, AND LATER HE IS TO HAVE TALKS WITH CHANCELLOR WILLY BRANDT AND PRESIDENT GUSTAV HEINEMANN.

    SPEAKING TO REPORTERS BEFORE HIS MEETING WITH HERR SCHEEL, MR. EBAN SAID THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FREE AND FRANK RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ISRAEL AND WEST GERMANY WAS ONE OF THE URGENT MORAL NECESSITIES OF THE AGE.

    HERR SCHEEL SAID MR. EBAN'S FIRST OFFICIAL VISIT WAS A SIGNIFICANT DATE IN THE HISTORY OF GERMAN-ISRAELI RELATIONS - RELATIONS ROOTED IN THE PROBLEM OF A DARK PAST, A THREATENED PRESENT AND HOPES FOR A BETTER AND PEACEFUL FUTURE.

    WEST GERMAN POLICE HAVE TAKEN RIGID SECURITY PRECAUTIONS TO PROTECT MR. EBAN WHILE HE VISITS THE COUNTRY. HIS GUARD WAS PARTICULARLY STRONG IN MUNICH, WHERE RECENTLY THERE HAS SEEN AN ARAB BOMB ATTACK ON AN ISRAELI AIRLINER AND AN ARSONIST FIRE IN A JEWISH OLD PEOPLE'S HOME.
