  • Description

    West Germany's Foreign Minister, Herr Walter Scheel, arrived in Malta on Sunday (10 September) for talks with Malta's Prime Minister, Mr. Mintoff on bilateral relations.

    But discussions are expected to extend beyond relations between West Germany and Malta. Herr Scheel's government is an important member of the European Economic Community--for which Mr. Mintoff's government is seeking a GBP12 million grant and a GBP10 million soft loan. Mr. Mintoff wants the money to assist his country to industrialise.

    However, it is reported from various European capitals that there is considerable opposition among Common Market members towards granting Mr. Mintoff the assistance he asks. It is argued that such aid would open the floodgates to other countries seeking closer association with the E.E.C.
