Background: The French Foreign Minister, M. Pineau, arrived in Bonn today for talks with Dr. Adenauer, the West German Chancellor, and Herr von Brentano, the West German Foreign Minister. The meetings took place behind locked doors.
At the Airport, M. Pineau said his visit formed part of the preparations for the proposed summit conference. He is reported as having said that France might represent West German interests at the summit.
Cynics here take the view that it would be more accurate to say that M. Pineau was asking Dr. Adenauer to protect the interests of France at the preparatory talks.
