Trudeau carries his plan for disarming to E. Berlin

Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau was met at Schonefeld Airport here Monday by East German chief of state Erich Honecker. Mr. Trudeau was to discuss his one-man nuclear disarmament initiative with Mr. Honecker in two sessions of formal talks today.

The Canadian leader is the first NATO head of government to visit East Berlin , which the alliance does not recognize as the capital of communist East Germany.

Western diplomats said Trudeau's visits to Czechoslovakia last week and to East Germany, both at his initiative, were chosen because they are the sites of new Warsaw Pact nuclear weapons. The Canadian leader goes on to Romania Wednesday for talks with President Nicolae Ceausescu at the latter's suggestion, the diplomats said.
