  • Description

    Warsaw Pact Foreign Ministers opened a two-day meeting in Bucharest on Thursday (18 February) to discuss problems on the preparation of an all-European conference on security and cooperation. On Friday (19 February), the Warsaw Pact nations called for East-West contacts on a multilateral basis to prepare for the all-European conference.

    SYNOPSIS: Foreign ministers of the seven Warsaw Pact nations took part in a two-day meeting which opened in Bucharest on Thursday. The ministers were to discuss problems on the preparation of an all-European conference on security and cooperation. Among those attending was Russia's Mr. Gromyko.

    When the conference ended on Friday, a communique was issued which called for East-West contacts on a multilateral basis to prepare for the all-European conference. It was termed urgent.

    It was suggested in Bucharest that multilateral contacts meant preliminary meetings of East and West at ambassador level in Helsinki --- the Finnish capital.

    The Bucharest communique backed the offer made by the Finnish Government proposing Helsinki as the site for preliminary ambassadorial meetings between East and West to prepare for the European conference. The statement also called for equality-based relations with East Germany.
