    TRANSCRIPT: BRANDT: "IT IS NO LONGER THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC WHICH IS IN DANGER OF BYPASSING - IN THOUGHT AND DEED - THE GREAT POLITICAL DEVELOPMENTS. THIS ROLE HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER, WITH GREAT EAGERNESS, BY THE LEADING FIGURES IN EAST BERLIN: IT IS TRUE, THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN LIMPING BEHIND DEVELOPMENTS, BUT NOW THIS SOMETIMES TAKES ON GROTESQUE FORMS. THEY, WHO ALWAYS CALL ON THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC TO THINK 'REALISTICALLY', WILL MOST LIKELY BE THE LAST TO ADAPT THEMSELVES TO THE 'NEW REALITIES'. THIS DOES NOT FILL US WITH JOY, NOR WITH THE SLIGHTEST SUGGESTION OF TRIUMPH. WE WANT A LESSENING OF TENSION. WE WANT PEACE WITH SECURITY AND ARE NOT INTERESTED IN 'ANNEXING' ANYTHING OR PLAYING SOMEBODY OFF AGAINST SOMEBODY ELSE. WE HAVE STARTED A NEW EASTERN POLICY. THE POLICY OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC IS NOT DIRECTED AGAINST ANOTHER STATE. WE ARE READY TO PROVE THIS. OUR HAND IS OUTSTRETCHED. WE SHOULD BE GLAD IF NO-ONE REJECTED IT."
