Proposal Would
WASHINGT6N - (P) - Russia
last night proposed a meeting of
the foreign ministers of the Unit-
ed States, Britain and France on
its -Prague Proposals for creation
of an All-German Constitutional
Council to unify Germany under
one government.
Such a proppsal was handed
U.S. Ambassador Alan G. Kirk in
Moscow last night, the State De-
partment said.
THE CREATION of an All-Ger-
man Constitutional Council to uni-
fy Germany under one govern-
ment was first proposed in Prague
on Oct. 21 by Russia and seven
satellite countries.
Four proposals were made by
the Soviet Bloc:
1. A proclamation by the So-
viet Union, Britain, France and
the United States "That they will
not allow the remilitarization of
2. "The removal of all hindran-
'ces in the road to the developnenV
of a peaceful German economy
and the inadmissibility of the re-
habilitation of the German war
* s -
3. "THE UNDELAYED conclu-
sion of a peace treaty with Ger-
many," the creation of a unified
German State, and the withdraw-
al of all occupation forces a year
after the signing of the treaty.
4. "The creation of an All-
German Constitutional Council on
the basis of balanced representa-
tion of Western and Eastern Ger-
many, which should prepare for
the establishment of an interim
democratic, peace-loving, all-Ger-
man Sovereign Government."
However, there was little indi-
cation last night that Russia's
suggestion sfor a foreign ministers
conference on the Prague Plan
would be accepted.
