The first democratic all-German Parliament in 57 years convened in the historic Reichstag building Thursday, and its senior legislator, Willy Brandt, called on the united nation to shoulder greater global responsibilities. In a keynote speech to the new Bundestag, the policy-making lower house, the 77-year-old former chancellor said that modernizing the former East Germany will be a huge task but must not detract from growing German duties around the world.

In the first speech by an Israeli president to the German parliament, Ezer Weizman said he can never forgive the Nazis for killing 6 million Jews. The 71-year-old Weizman warned Germans to remain vigilant against neo-Nazism and racism, but he also said the two nations "have to find common ground" to improve ties. Weizman's speech in Hebrew was a highlight of a four-day state visit that has included a wreath-laying at a World War II concentration camp outside Berlin.

This city, which lost out to Berlin as united Germany's seat of government, was handed a consolation prize Friday when the upper house of Parliament voted, as expected, to stay here for the time being. The small but influential Bundesrat--made up of representatives of Germany's 16 states--voted 38-30 in favor of remaining in this quiet Rhineside town. The powerful lower house, the Bundestag, voted on June 20 to move itself and the government from Bonn to Berlin by the end of the century.
