  • Description

    Before leaving London at the end of his three-day visit, Dr. Adenauer, West German Chancellor, gave a Press conference at the Dorchester Hotel, Speaking in German he told the Press men through his interpreter that there was complete agreement between Prime Minister Macmillan and himself on the political aspects of disarmament, but that nothing final could be said about the Western position concerning a conference with the Soviet Union until after joint discussions with the United States in December.

    Asked if Germany would manufacture nuclear weapons, Dr. Adenauer replied: "We have no money for that sort of thing, and we don't want it anyway. We want modern missiles to protect us against aircraft, which is, I think, understandable".

    Referring to the European Economic Community ("the Six", to which Germany belongs) and the Free Trade Association ("the Outer Seven" with which Britain is connected) Dr. Adenauer said these two organisations must in no circumstances load to anything like economic warfare in Europe.

    The Chancellor said it had been a great pleasure for him to meet Sir Winston Churchill, and Sir Anthony Eden, with whom he worked for many years.
