Lack of unity on USSR is rapped by Kissinger

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger Sunday lamented the lack of unity between the Western powers in their attitude toward the Soviet Union and indirectly attacked a decision by West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt to visit Moscow. Dr. Kissinger told a press conference in West Berlin that the chief cause for concern in the Western world at present was not economic problems but the inability of the United States and Western Europe to consult regularly or reach common positions on foreign policy, particularly in relations with the Kremlin.

"We need a consensus not only in the United States but also among the allies about what they want to achieve with the Soviet Union," he said. "Otherwise we will be ground to pieces."
