WEST, SOVIETS AGREE ON PLAN TO REUNIFY TWO GERMANYS

At their ``Open Skies'' conference in Ottawa, foreign ministers from NATO and Warsaw Pact nations took significant steps to shape the map of Europe emerging from the chaos of communism's decline. Perhaps the most momentous was an agreement between the US, its European allies, and the USSR and East Germany about a structure to control and watch over German reunification. By agreeing to such a structure, all involved admitted that previous reunification plans are dated, and that East Germany will simply collapse into West Germany's arms in the next few months.

Under the ``2 plus 4'' plan, the two Germanys will settle internal questions of union, then meet with the four victorious powers of World War II to settle alliance and other external questions. Poland is also reportedly demanding a role in the six-power group.
