  • Description

    THE EAST GERMAN FOREIGN MINISTER, HERR OTTO WINZER, ARRIVED IN PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA, RECENTLY AS PART OF HIS GOVERNMENT'S EFFORTS TO WIN RECOGNITION FROM NEUTRAL STATES. HERR WINZER HAS JUST ENDED A FIVE-DAY VISIT TO BURMA, WHERE HE HAD TALKS WITH GOVERNMENT LEADERS.

    HERR WINZER SAID IN BURMA THAT HE WAS TOURING SEVERAL AFRICAN AND ASIAN COUNTRIES TO EXPLAIN EAST GERMANY'S NEW DRAFT CONSTITUTION. IT'S BELIEVED HE'S ECHOING THE DEMAND OF THE EAST GERMAN COMMUNIST PARTY LEADER, HERR WALTER ULBRICHT, THAT NEUTRAL COUNTRIES SHOULD HOLD EQUAL RELATIONS WITH BOTH EAST AND WEST GERMANY. HERR ULBRICHT SAID RECENTLY THAT IF SWITZERLAND WANTED TO PURSUE A CONSISTENT POLICY OF NEUTRALISM THEN OBVIOUSLY IT MUST HAVE "EQUAL DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH BOTH GERMAN STATES."
    EAST GERMANY FAILED TO MATCH THE WEST GERMAN GOVERNMENT LAST YEAR IN ESTABLISHING DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH CAMBODIA. BUT CAMBODIA -- WHICH HAS NO DIPLOMATS IN EAST BERLIN -- DECIDED TO RAISE THE EAST GERMAN CONSULATE GENERAL IN PHNOM PENH TO THE UNUSUAL RANK OF "REPRESENTATION". IT'S BELIEVED THAT HERR WINZER WILL BE PRESSING PRINCE NORODOM SIHANOUK'S GOVERNMENT FOR FULL DIPLOMATIC RECOGNITION FOR EAST GERMANY.
