Mr. Speaker:

This visit gives us an opportunity to reciprocate, even if only in a very limited way, the generous hospitality extended to many Canadian government and parliamentary delegations to Germany during the last few years.

The Canadian members of parliament are indeed gratified and happy to welcome our distinguished parliamentary colleagues from Germany. Their visit gives us the opportunity to bring back to mind the considerable contribution of Canadians of German origin to all aspects of our national life. We therefore extend the heartiest welcome to you, Mr. President Gerstenmaier, and to your distinguished colleagues.

It is our hope that your stay in Canada will be interesting, pleasant and fruitful and that it will contribute to the strengthening of bonds of friendship between the peoples of Canada and of Germany.

THE LATE ARIEH ESHEL

EXPRESSIONS OF REGRET ON DEATH OF ISRAELI AMBASSADOR

?

Right Hon. P.-E. Trudeau@Prime Minister

Mr. Speaker, it is with deep regret that I

draw to the attention of the house the passing away last evening of the Israeli ambassador to Canada, Mr. Arieh Eshel. I know that all members of the house will wish to join in conveying our sympathy and regret to Mrs. Eshel and the immediate family at their grievous loss, and to the government and people of Israel. Mr. Eshel was a devoted servant of his country who had held three ambassadorial postings in this hemisphere-in Uruguay, Brazil and New York-before coming here. His time with us has unhappily been cut short, but we shall long remember his vivacity, warmth and dedication. As a mark of respect the flag on the Peace Tower is being flown at half mast today and will remain at half mast tomorrow.

Mr. David Lewis (York South):

I wish to join with the Prime Minister in expressing the deep regret of my hon. friends and myself over the sudden death of Mr. Eshel. Like other members of this house I had the pleasure of meeting the Israeli ambassador during his short stay in this country, and I was impressed by his devotion to the cause of his people and to the cause of peace in the world. My hon. friends and I extend our condolences to Mrs. Eshel, who in her own right has served her country in many parts of the world, particularly at the United Nations, and to their children and the people of Israel at their loss.

Mr. David Lewis (York South):

Before we leave this order of business may I say one word. I had hoped the Secretary of State for External Affairs was about to make a statement to the house on his visit to New York, and particularly on his discussions concerning Nigeria and Biafra. I wonder whether the minister would consider doing so now.

On a point of order, I wonder whether the house would consent to having the minister's statement printed as an appendix to Hansard today so we might all have a chance to see it.
