Bonn-Israel Accord Reached in Talks;
Completion of Arms Shipment, Return
of Scientists From Cairo Also Included

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM — Full agreement
has been reached in talks between
West Germany's special emissary
and Israeli government leaders on
conditions for establishment of
diplomatic relations between the
two countries, it was announced
Wednesday as the emissary, Dr.
Kurt Birrenbach, left for West
Under the agrement, West Ger-
many has agreed to complete the
final part of a shipment of several
million dollars in weapons to
Israel but through a third party.
The agreement provides for $40-
million in West German economic
aid to Israel annually. It was also
reported • that the agreement in-
corporates a solution for the prob-
lem of West German scientists
and technicians working on ad-
vanced weapons systems for Presi-
dent Nasser in Egypt. The West
German embassy will be located
in Tel Aviv. Names of ambassa-
dors have not yet been submitted.
The agreement will be present-
ed for ratification to the next
session of the West German
cabinet and to Israel with a joint
communique expected within two
weeks. The 'communique; it was
understood, will avoid any decla-
ration that West Germany will
not send any more arms to Israel
as West Germany had proposed
- before the talks began.
The "third party" formula will
enable West Germany to complete
shipment of the arms to Israel
while still adhering to its stand of
not sending arms to "areas of
tension." That stand was evolved
in the controversy that followed
the disclosure that West Germany
was sending, with U.S. encourage-
ment, a huge supply of arms to
Israel. The disclosure touched off
a diplomatic crisis between Bonn
and Egypt, with the latter country
threatening to break diplomatic
ties with West Germany and to
recognize Communist East Ger-
many. Chancellor Ludwig Erhard
responded with an announcement
March 7 that it would extend diplo
matic recognition to Israel and
sent Dr. Birrenbach to Jerusalem

to negotiate conditions.
- The agreement on- the issue of.
West German scientists in Egypt
provides that while West Germany
will not adopt legislation against
the scientists it will take steps to
ensure their return and to keep
additional scientists from accept-
ing contracts for such work in
Dr. Birrenbach said before
boarding a plane for West Ger-
many that the talks were held
in a most cordial atmosphere
and that the negotiators "made
efforts to solve problems on the
basis of mutual understanding."
He added that "what happens
next depends on direct talks be-
tween the Israeli and West Ger-
man governments which will
have to decide whether to accept
or reject the conclusions of the
talks here."
He refused to answer press ques-
tions about details of the talks
but did say that West Germany
and other European countries
could help Israel greatly in de-
veloping its southern Negev area,
actually the industrialization of the
area and of Israel as a whole.
Asked if he planned to return to
Israel, he said he might return
next fall or spring but that it
would be with his family and as
a private tourist.
