July 08, 1987|From Reuters

VIENNA — Austrian President Kurt Waldheim, barred from the United States on suspicion he was involved in World War II atrocities while serving with Hitler's army, has been invited to visit West Germany, it was disclosed today.

West German President Richard von Weizsaecker proposed a "neighborly meeting," Austrian Foreign Minister Alois Mock said. Though such an unofficial meeting would not rank as a state visit, the invitation is the first extended to Waldheim by a Western head of state to be made public.
