Germans aid Vietnam

Usis, Bonn.—A planeload of eight tons of medical supplies, a gift from the Federal Republic of Germany to the Republic of (South) Vietnam, left Bonn Airport late last month for Saigon.

The German Minister of the Interior, Paul Luecke, and the Vietnamese Ambassador were at the airport to see the chartered plane take off.

Mr. Luecke said this was the first shipment of a total of about 1500 tons of medical supplies going from Germany to Vietnam. He emphasised the humanitarian aspect of this aid and mentioned that the German people remember the aid they received after World War II.

The 1500 tons of medical supplies is valued at 17.5 million deutschemarks, or nearly 4.400,000 dollars. The bulk of the shipment will go by sea next month.
