Genscher's Visit to Israel
Boosts Economic Cooperation

West German Foreign
Minister Hans-Dietrich
Genscher ended his visit to
Israel with a declaration at
Ben-Gurion Airport that he
believed Israel has shown its
"readiness to continue along
a constructive road to
peace." Germany's interest,
he added, was "a lasting and
strong peace in this area."
Genscher's visit, as the
guest of Israeli Foreign
Minister Yigal Allon, was
termed successful by Israeli
officials, particularly in the
field of future economic
cooperation between Israel
and West Germany. But dif-
ferences, especially over Is-
rael's future boundaries and
the Palestine question over-
shadowed the political as-
pects of the visit. .
Genscher was, in fact,
taken to task for the recent
"unofficial" contacts be-
tween West German offi-
cials and PLO representa-

The German leader took
pains to stress that those
contacts were not on any
official level and that they
were utilized to make it
clear to the PLO that it
could not hope for Bonn's
support in a peacemaking

role unless it changed the

In the economic sphere,
the main problem was the
serious imbalance in trade
between Israel and West
Germany. The latter coun-
try sells $700 million worth
of exports to Israel annually
but imports only $135 mil-
lion worth of goods from
that country. The economic
aides of both ministers held
lengthy talks during which
the Germans proposed that
Israeli firms should be en-
couraged to exhibit their
wares in Germany; more
trade missions from West
Germany to Israel; and a
mutual sharing of indus-
trial know-how between the
two countries.

NEW YORK — United

against the Mideast oilfields
may have been written off
as impractical — most re-
cently in a 1975 study by the
Library of Congress — but
the Pentagon doesn't seem
to have abandoned the idea
According to Newsweek,
when West Germany asked
the U.S. to participate in
simulated seizures of oil-
fields during maneuvers
this fall, the Pentagon sent
the U.S. Special Forces to
take part.
