Thursday, December 9, 1976 Kissinger Bids Farewells in Europe RODS BRUSSELS, Belgium (UPI) - Secretary of State Henry Kissinger began making his farewells to Western European colleagues yesterday, looking back over his years as molder of U.S. foreign policy "with some satisfaction."

He also heard their opinions. Kissinger said he would "pass on to my successor" views gleaned from the meetings. In a series of statements, Kissinger agreed with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, also here for a NATO defense meeting, that the alliance is showing encouraging signs of unity. Rumsfeld stressed, however, that the continuing Soviet arms buildup could shift the balance of power unless NATO maintains a high level of defense spending. Kissinger is scheduled to address the NATO Council today. Kissinger had a breakfast meeting with Sir Christopher Soames, co-president of the European Community Executive Commission, soon to leave office as well. Afterward, a spokesman said, "The two men could look back to 1973 (when Kissinger became secretary f state) with some satisfaction." Then, Kissinger drove two blocks to the Royal Palace where he had a private audience with Belgium's King Baudouin. He later spent 30 minutes with Jordan's Crown Prince Hassan. Afterward, Kissinger said, "It was a good opportunity to get his Highness' views on the Middle East, which 1 11 pass on to my successor." Kissinger also met Norwegian Foreign Minister Knut Frydenlund for talks that centered on border disputes between Norway and the Soviet Union and Dutch Foreign Minister Max Van Der Stoel. Kissinger then met West German Foreign Minister Hans-Dieter Genscher for 90 minutes at the U.S. ambassador's residence. Waldheim Keeps Top U.N.
