KOHL SAYS EC SUMMIT WILL SUCCEED

German Chancellor Helmut Kohl said in an interview broadcast yesterday that he was optimistic that next month's European Community summit in Maastricht, Netherlands, would succeed.He told French television that Europeans had nothing to fear from economic and political integration, which was the best way to keep the power of individual countries like Germany in check. "In the next three weeks [before the Maastricht summit] much will be said, doubted, criticized," Mr. Kohl told Antenne 2 from his office in Bonn. "We will work for two days and two nights, but the result will be good." The 12-nation EC hopes to finalize treaties on monetary and political union at the summit on Dec. 8-9 despite fears, notably from Britain, that such moves might jeopardize the sovereignty of individual members.
