HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
COMMITTEE ON INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS,
Hon. THOMAS E. MORGAN,
Chairman, Committee on International Relations,
DEAR MR. CHAIRMAN: We are submitting for consideration by the Committee on International Relations a report on the visit to Munich, Germany, on April 14-16, 1975, by members of the committee, and other Members of the House to Munich, Germany, where they met with an official delegation of the European Parliament.
We hope that the report will be useful to the committee in its consideration of legislation relating to U.S. relations with Europe.

This is seventh meeting of American Congressmen and members of the European Parliament. This series, which alternates between European and Washington meeting sites, will be continued next month when a delegation from the European Parliament arrives in Washington.
With the Munich meeting, reported on the following pages, we have had nearly 50 House Members as participants in the series. From our first session in Luxembourg in January 1972, the program has now become an important, and permanent, feature of American-European relations.
While we were meeting in Munich, the final stages of American withdrawal from Southeast Asia were being enacted. The end of our military operations in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos signified more than military redeployments. Vietnam no longer drains the national energies; it no longer taxes the credibility of our genuine international interests. While the scar of Vietnam will never disappear, the wound is closed and we can now concentrate on important American interests abroad. Europe remains at the top of that list.
