  • Description

    British Premier Macmillan and Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd were waiting on platform 2 of London's Victoria Railway Station Nov 17 to greet West German Chancellor, Dr Konrad Adenauer, on his arrival for a two-day "working" visit to London.

    Chancellor Adenauer had earlier arrived at Gatwick Airport, Sussex, where he was met by Mr John Profumo, Minister of State at the British Foreign Office.

    Soon after his arrival, Chancellor Adenauer drove to No 10 Downing Street for the first of a series of conferences with the British Premier and other Ministers. It is hoped that Dr. Adenauer's visit will result in a satisfactory settlement of remaining Anglo-German differences.

    Two main differences between the two countries; Germany's misunderstanding of the British view on disengagement. -- Dr Adenauer sees an area of limitation of armaments in Central Europe as a British effort, conscious or unconscious, to permanently divide Germany, n reduce the Federal Republic to a zone in a vacuum of disengagement. Britain, on the other hand, suspiciously regards Chancellor Adenauer's proposals to obtain political integration of continental Western Europe through the Common Market. The Chancellor says this is essential in defence against pressure from the East.
