  • Description

    West Germany's Christian Democratic Party was yesterday (Thursday) accused of "anti-communist blindness" during a hard-hitting statement to the Sejm, the Parliament of Poland. The accusations came from Polish Foreign Minister Stefan Olszowski in an account of the threat posed to his country's non-aggression treaty with West Germany by the opposition of the West German Christian Democrats.

    Their attempt to topple West German Chancellor Willy Brandt with a vote of no confidence on Thursday was described by Mr. Olszowski as a "fiasco" and "a provocative challenge to detente in Europe". He added that the right wing opposition "is openly supported by revisionist, nationalistic and neo-Hitlerite forces".

    The Bonn-Warsaw treaty has been progressing smoothly through Poland's administrative procedures. The Cabinet last week submitted it to the State Council, which ratifies all international agreements.
