  • Description

    As the 34-nation preparatory talks for a European Security Conference entered their second round in Helsinki on Monday (15 January), the Common Market countries took the initiative by putting forward a complete agenda and terms of reference for a European Security Conference.

    Belgium presented a twelve-page document, on behalf of the EEC., which called for the talks to decide immediately on an Agenda and on terms of reference. Previously the Soviet Union appeared to be forcing the pace of the talks. With this 12 page document the EEC now seems to be taking the initiative. They propose to ??? the awkward problems of venue participation an date--the issues which caused difficulty at the first-round talks which ended a month ago.

    SYNOPSIS: In Helsinki, delegates from thirty-four nations arrived at the Conference hall where the second round of talks for a European Security Conference was held on Monday.

    A delegate representing the United States was there, but it was the nine Common Market countries who took the initiative. They put forward a complete agenda, and terms of reference for a European Security Conference. It was Belgium who tabled the twelve-page document, on behalf of the EEC countries. The document called for talks to decide immediately on an agenda, and on terms of reference. The EEC document aims at bypassing the awkward problems of venue, participation and date. These were the issues which caused difficulty during the first round of talks which ended a month ago.
