Bonn Sees Early End of German-jewish Talks; Predicts Success

West German Foreign Ministry circles today stated that they expect a satisfactory conclusion of the reparations talks between West Germany and Israel and the Jewish Claims Conference in the near future. This estimate was made on the basis of reports received here from members of the German negotiating team at The Hague.

The same circles stressed the desire of the Bonn Government to start making reparations payments to Israel and world Jewry as soon as possible in order to assist in the rehabilitation of Jewish refugees in Europe and Israel.
