Cable from Jean Sauvagnargues on disagreements between France and Germany with regard to economic and monetary union (Bonn, 14 January 1971)

On 14 January 1971, in preparation for the French-German Summit on economic and monetary union due to be held on 25 and 26 January 1971, the French Ambassador to Bonn, Jean Sauvagnargues, sends a cable to his Foreign Ministry in which he outlines his discussions with German State Secretary von Braun. He highlights the German Federal Government’s concern to reduce the distance between the French and German positions, without wishing to go back over points on which agreement has already been reached.
