Bonn Rejects Arab Ties; Shuns Demands Over Israel
BONN (JTA ) — Arab League
plans for resumption of diplomatic
relations with West Germany have :
foundered on three points involv-
ing Bonn's relations with Israel,
political circles here revealed.
They said the German government
has thus far rejected Arab de-
mands that West Germany finance
aid to the Arab refugees through ,
direct payment: issue a written
declaration of Bonn's policy to-
ward Israel; and declare its atti-
tude toward Israel's application
for associate membership in the
European Economic Community.
Three days of talks, concluded
here last Saturday, between Chan-
cellor Kurt Georg Kiesinger and
Foreign Minister Willy Brandt,
and the Arab League's secretary-
general, Abdel Halik Hassouna.
All but three of the 13 member
states of the Arab League had
severed diplomatic relations with
West Germany two years ago after
Bonn had established diplomatic
relations with Israel. The excep-
tions were Libya, Tunisia and
Morocco. Jordan reestablished its
diplomatic relations this year.
Hassouna carried on most of
his talks with Brandt. Brandt, it
was revealed, had expressed
German willingness to aid the
Arab refugees, but only through
the United Nations, fearing that
direct financing of such help
would subside the terrorist ac-
tivities of the anti-Israeli sabo-
tage groups under the banner
of the El Fatah sabotage units.
Hassouna wanted payments made
to the Arab League on behalf of
Brandt was willing to pledge
50,000,000 marks (S12,500,000)
after the resumption of German-
Arab diplomatic relations, to be
paid over a period of several
years through UN machinery.
Brandt was understood to have
refused to issue a declaration on
Israeli-German relations, stating
that it was not customary to issue
a state declaration on German poli-
cy toward other states.
