P. M. BRIEFING : W. Germany Freezes Aid to China

<i> From Times wire service</i> s

The government said today it has frozen more than $110 million in development aid to China because of the recent “bloody events” there.

The federal government also has ordered all its aid experts and advisers in China to return home and has canceled travel to the country by its economic development personnel, said Hans-Peter Repnik, the second-ranking official of the Ministry for Economic Cooperation.

In addition, work had started on 125 development aid projects which already have cost West Germany $220 million under a 1985 agreement, Repnik said. Support for the projects is now frozen except where it is to the advantage of the Chinese people to continue them, he said without elaborating.
