    DR. SCHROEDER: "OUR TALKS WILL MAINLY BE DEDICATED TO THE PROBLEMS CONNECTED WITH THE BRUSSELS NEGOTIATIONS ON GREAT BRITAIN'S ACCESSION TO THE COMMON MARKET. THE UNITED KINGDOM'S DECISION TO ENTER THESE NEGOTIATIONS IS OF GREAT POLITICAL WEIGHT AND OF HISTORICAL CONSEQUENCE. WE FEEL THAT DESPITE THE DENSE UNDERGROWTH OF ECONOMIC PROBLEMS, IT WILL BE POSSIBLE TO GIVE THE OVER-RIDING POLITICAL OBJECTIVE OF EUROPEAN CO-OPERATION THAT PRIORITY WHICH IT DESERVES. I THUS HOPE THAT WE SHALL SOON ARRIVE AT A POSITIVE CONCLUSION OF THE BRUSSELS NEGOTIATIONS."

    Background: DR. GERHARD SCHROEDER, WEST GERMAN FOREIGN MINISTER, IS IN BRITAIN FOR COMMON MARKET AND NATO TALKS WITH BRITISH MINISTERS. HE FLEW INTO LONDON'S NORTHOLT AIRPORT TODAY (MONDAY), AND WAS WELCOMED BY MR. EDWARD HEATH, BRITAIN'S CHIEF NEGOTIATOR WITH THE SIX-NATION EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET.

    DR. SCHROEDER, REGARDED IN BRITAIN AS A FIRM SUPPORTER OF BRITISH MEMBERSHIP OF THE COMMON MARKET, IS EXPECTED TO DISCUSS POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS OF BRITAIN'S ENTRY DURING THE TWO-DAY ANGLO-GERMAN CONSULTATIONS.

    HE WILL ALSO CONFER WITH LORD HOME, BRITISH FOREIGN MINISTER, REPORTEDLY TO SEEK FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT PRESIDENT KENNEDY'S OFFER OF POLARIS MISSILES AND ITS POSSIBLE RESULTS.

    HE HAS ALREADY WELCOMED THE NASSAU AGREEMENT ON POLARIS AS A FIRST STEP TOWARD ESTABLISHMENT OF A MULTILATERAL NATO NUCLEAR FORCE. GERMAN OFFICIALS IN BRITAIN EXPECT NO SENSATIONAL RESULTS FROM THE LONDON TALKS, BUT SAY THAT THEY MAY WELL SMOOTH THE PATH FOR BRITISH NEGOTIATIONS IN BRUSSELS.

    ON HIS ARRIVAL TODAY, DR. SCHROEDER TOLD REPORTERS:
