which was far less than that given by the EEC countries and, of course, much less than the U.N. target. Doubts had been expressed about the implementation of President Carter's intentions in this matter and he asked specifically whether Congress would accept the executive's proposal.
Mr. Lange, recalling that economic problems had recently been discussed by Heads of State and Government at the Downing Street Summit, said that it was vital that the industrialized countries should examine these problems and find solutions for them. Only then would they have a chance to solving problems in the Third World. There could then be a new world economic order but this new order must not be established at the cost of liberty.
AN IMAGE OF EUROPE
Mr. Zagari felt that it was important for the members of the Euro-pean delegation to give their U.S. colleagues an image of Europe. At the next meeting they should try to explain what enlargement of the EEC could mean. Mediterranean problems could also be discussed and he stressed the need to make progress with direct elections
Mr. Ryan sounded a note of alarm, pointing out that the industrialized countries were faced with exhaustion of certain natural resources and that they seemed unconcerned about this: they did not save energy, they continued to spend vast sums on arms, etc. The battle was now one for human existence and global solutions should be worked out.
Mr. Fraser, referring to Mr. Glinne's question, remarked that if the U.S. administration was seeking to double economic assistance, that assistance would then be approximately equivalent to that of the European nations. As to whether President Carter's intentions would be implemented, he thought that would depend upon whether the President wished to invest some of his political credit in a wide publicity campaign.
