    Background: The French Defence Minister, M. Pierre Messmer, arrived in Bonn Nov. 24. At the German Defence Ministry he was greeted by Germany's Defence Minister, Herr Strauss.

    It was described as a courtesy visit, but on both sides there were groups of senior advisers and it was thought high-level defence questions would be discussed. A few days earlier an American delegation in Bonn was rebuffed when it came to seek a bigger contribution from West Germany towards defence and foreign aid costs.
