Reply by the WEU Council to Assembly Recommendation 281 (London, 10 June 1976)

On 10 June 1976, the Secretary-General of Western European Union (WEU) circulates the reply by the WEU Council to Assembly Recommendation 281. The Council notes that all the countries in the Atlantic Alliance have a duty to contribute to security in the light of the increasing strength of the Warsaw Pact’s forces, particularly by developing a competitive armaments industry that has sufficient means for research and production. The Council encourages any initiatives that promote cooperation and interoperability in the field of armaments. It welcomes the results obtained by the European Programme Group (IEPG) and points out that avoiding destandardisation is as important as promoting standardisation. These matters are dealt with in WEU, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), the Eurogroup and the IEPG, and there is no need for a new list of armaments programmes to be drawn up. The Council has asked the Standing Armaments Committee to produce a descriptive analysis of the situation of the armaments industries in the WEU Member States so as to provide a clearer insight into the industrial and economic implications of the standardisation of armaments. Despite the difficulties involved in this cooperation, the Member States attach particular importance to these activities and will not let themselves be discouraged.
