  • Description

    SOVIET JET FIGHTERS BUZZED THE WESTERN SECTOR OF BERLIN YESTERDAY EVENING (TUESDAY) JUST BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF THE WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR, DR. LUDWIG ERHARD. FOR ONE-AND-A-HALF HOURS THEY STREAKED LOW OVER TEMPELHOF AIRPORT, APPARENTLY IN PROTEST AGAINST TODAY'S PLENARY SESSION IN WEST BERLIN OF THE WEST GERMAN BUNDESTAG (LOWER HOUSE OF PARLIAMENT).

    DR. ERHARD, WHO WILL ATTEND A CABINET MEETING, SAID THE WESTERN AUTHORITIES WOULD NOT GIVE AN INCH UNDER WHAT HE TERMED "COMMUNIST PRESSURE". HE REITERATED THE BONN GOVERNMENT'S REJECTION OF THE EAST GERMAN CONTENTION THAT WEST BERLIN HAS SPECIAL STATUS AND THEREFORE DOES NOT BELONG TO WEST GERMANY.

    THE SOVIET UNION ALSO HAS PROTESTED AGAINST THE BONN PARLIAMENT'S MEETING -- THE FIRST IN WEST BERLIN FOR SEVEN YEARS. TERMING IT "ILLEGAL" AND OF A "PROVOCATIVE CHARACTER", RUSSIA SAID WEST BERLIN HAS NEVER BEEN PART OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC.

    (TODAY, EAST GERMANY CLOSED THE AUTOBAHNS BETWEEN WEST BERLIN AND WEST GERMANY FOR THE THIRD SUCCESSIVE DAY).
