Buffer Zone Proposed In Geneva Talk West Allies Would Guarantee Against German Aggression By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER GENEVA Ml — Russia and the Western powers clashed in the Big Four foreign ministers meeting today with rival and apparently irreconcilable plans for European security. The United States, Britain and France got in first, presenting to Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Mo- :otov a' nine-point "treaty of assurance on the reunification of Germany." It would become fully effective only if East and West "ermany were united and the new Germany became a member of the N'orth Atlantic Treaty Organiza- :ion. • Mololov responded with a 15- pbint proposal for a European ;ecurity treaty, delaying German . unification indefinitely. Under the Soviet program NATO would be destroyed. Communist China would become .an "observer" in Europe . and all American troops would eventually have to be withdrawn 'from the territories of European countries." West Rejects Proposals By the time Molotov acted the ' iVestern ministers had already re- lected his . proposal. They based heir statement, in advance of its iresentation, on Russian proposals which had been made at the leneva .summit- conference in July. "France, the. United Kingdom and the United States of America," they'told Molotov', "are not prepared, to enter into a system of European security which, as in the Soviet proposals put forward at eneva (in July) does not end the division of Germany." The aim of the treaty proposal s to induce Russia to agree to reunification of Germany and its membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Alliance. The treaty would become fully effective only if united Germany became a NATO member as West; Germany now is. Together with the security offer Secretary of State Dulles, British 'oreign Secretary Macmillan and 'rench Foreign Minister Pinay proposed to Soviet Foreign Minis- er Molotov all over again a plan or unifying Germany through toe elections under Big Four supervi- ion. Virtually the same plan was iresentcd 20 months ago at theBcr- in Big Four conference. The action clause of the treaty iroposed today says "an attack n Europe by any party, which is Iso a member of NATO (specific- lly meaning united Germany), or ice versa, would endanger the eace and security which 'is'the bject of this treaty, and that all he parties would then take ap- rop'riate actidn to meet that common danger." Has Own Proposals Molotov had announced he would ntroduce at today's session Rusia's own proposals on Germany nd European security. Soviet pol- cy has opposed Western aims on hese problems and the Western Ian had no immediate prospect f acceptance by Russia. (.Continued on Page 2, Col. 3) J. S.
