    Background: West German Chancellor Willy Brandt said today (Monday) his talks with President Pompidou would help Western Europe move along the road towards economic and monetary union. He was speaking in Paris after his first round of talks with the French leader which were described as a very good start to the forth-coming and wide reaching conference between the two men.

    Her Brandt went to Colombey to lay a wreath in memory of President de Gaulle before beginning his discussions in Paris.

    After the first meeting, Herr Brandt was asked if there had been any sharp divergencies. He replied "No, I do not believe so".

    Paris and Bonn have sharply conflicting views on a controversial plan for European economic and monetary union. On his arrival in Paris Herr Brandt told newsmen he was sure the talks would lead to a cementing of Franco-German relations.
