‘Crisis within WEU’ from the Luxemburger Wort (21 February 1969)

On 21 February 1969, the daily newspaper Luxemburger Wort comments on the crisis facing Western European Union (WEU) following France’s decision to pursue an ‘empty chair’ policy and refuse to attend the meetings of the WEU Council. In so doing, the French Government, opposed to British accession to the European Economic Community, demonstrates its hostility to the idea that WEU might offer a bridge between the United Kingdom and the Community countries.
