The Free Democrats, the junior partner in West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl’s coalition government, said they will oppose any move by the government that would make West Germany the sole European participant in the U.S.-proposed “Star Wars” research program. The party endorsed a proposal to form a European research agency to develop space technology for civilian purposes. Kohl has said he sent experts to Washington to study the possibility of West German participation in the “Star Wars” project.
