East German leader Erich Honecker conferred with President Francois Mitterrand in Paris on disarmament issues. Honecker and Mitterrand praised the U.S.-Soviet treaty signed last month banning medium-range nuclear missiles in Europe. However, a French spokesman said Mitterrand told Honecker that France's short-range missiles are not up for negotiation and that it is too soon in the disarmament process to focus debate on this category of weapons.

In 1935, Erich Honecker, in his first visit to France, came as a young Communist to attend an international congress against fascism. He was jailed by the Nazis upon his return to Berlin, rose high in Communist Party ranks after World War II, and did not return to Paris until this week, more than a half-century later, in a symbolic and official visit as the leader of East Germany. The visit of Honecker, now 75, is the first by an East German leader to France.
