‘I thought I made it clear: no women allowed!’ On 28 September 1968, German cartoonist Wolfgang Hicks illustrates the prevailing tensions during the Franco-German talks on 27 and 28 September. French President Charles de Gaulle (on the left) is harshly critical of the foreign policy pursued by the Federal Republic of Germany and rebukes Federal Chancellor Kurt Georg Kiesinger (second from the right) for his accommodating position on the question of EEC enlargement to include the United Kingdom. The German Chancellor is flanked by his Foreign Minister Willy Brandt and Finance Minister Franz Josef Strauß.
