BONN--At one level, political observers here admit, the current Poland-West German border dispute is the ultimate tempest in a teapot. West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, they note, has been pressed by Warsaw to guarantee a frontier that West Germany formally recognized in a treaty with Poland 20 years ago, reaffirmed first in 1975 by signing the Helsinki agreement on European security and more recently in the form of a parliamentary declaration last November.

Poland's Parliament ratified two landmark treaties with Germany, moving to put behind the two countries bitter memories of World War II. Deputies in Warsaw voted 182-26, with 60 abstentions, to approve a treaty of cooperation between the two nations. The second treaty, guaranteeing Poland's western border with Germany, was opposed by only one deputy. The Bundestag, or lower house of the German Parliament, overwhelmingly approved the accords a day earlier.

Poland and Germany today formally settled one of the last disputes of World War II, signing a treaty confirming their long-questioned border on the Oder and Neisse rivers. In the pact, Germany abandons claim to 40,000 square miles of its former territory in East Prussia, Pomerania and Silesia that was added to Poland after the war. The land Poland gained from Germany made up for a much greater expanse of land in the east taken from Poland by the Soviet Union.
