    Background: The new non-aggression pact between the Soviet Union and West Germany was hailed as a major turning point in East-West relations by West German Foreign Minister Walter Scheel today (Friday), as he flew back to Bonn following 12 days of negotiations in Moscow.

    The treaty, under which the two nations will renounce the use of force and accept existing European boundaries as inviolable, had been initialled in Moscow earlier in the day by Herr Scheel and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko.

    At Bonn airport, Herr Scheel said that he hoped his country's reconciliation with eastern Europe would be more speedily accomplished as a result of the treaty. But, he added, the pact would not come into effect until four-power agreement had been reached to settle the Berlin problem.
