(CONF - ENTIRE TEXT). 2. SUMMARY. IN LONG AND LIVELY EXCHANGE, AIDE TO BSP VICE PRIME MINISTER FOR ECONOMIC AFFAIRS WILLY CLAES CAME TO EMBASSY AND ON CLAES' INSTRUCTIONS GAVE US EXTENSIVE BRIEFING (WITH SOME POINTS OF HIS OWN) ON SAD
  2. 2. Sheryl P. Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 Sheryl P. Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 PROSPECTS FOR TNF: HEAVY OPPOSITION IN BOTH SOCIALIST PARTIES; HIGH ANIMOSITY TOWARD SIMONET AND HIS HANDLING OF TNF ISSUE; GOVERNMENT VIRTUALLY PARALYZED BY CONVERG- ENCE OF DOMESTIC ISSUES ON WHICH CURRENT CVP STAND MAY PRECIPITATE EARLY TOPPLING OF GOVERNMENT. WILLEMS ALSO SAID THAT DUTCH PRIME MINISTER VAN AGT'S VISIT TO PRIME LMINISTER MARTENS THIS WEEK MAY HAVE FURTHER WEAKENED BELGIAN GOVERNMENT RESOLVE. MINISTER CLAES' CONCLUSIONS: "THE ONLY WAY THAT THE GOVERNMENT CAN SURVIVE IS TO DECIDE NOT TO DECIDE." OUR SOURCE SAW THE POSSIBILITY OF BELGIANS, DUTCH, AND DANES REACHING BY DECEMBER 12 COMMON DECISION FOR SIX-MONTH NATO DELAY. EMBASSY RECOMMENDATION: IN ADDITION TO OUR EARLIER RECOMMENDATION RE SCHMIDT-CLAES (REFTEL), WE BELIEVE THAT TIME HAS COME FOR HIGHEST POSSIBLE LEVEL U.S. COMMUNICATIONS STRESSING TO BELGIANS THE SERIOUSNESS OF ANY BACKSLIDING AND THE VITAL IMPORTANCE TO NATO ALLIANCE OF POSITIVE BELGIAN DECISION. END SUMMARY. 3. AT END OF DAY DECEMBER 5, LODE WILLEMS, AIDE TO VICE PRIME MINISTER AND MINISTER OF ECONOMIC AFFAIRS WILLY CLAES, VISITED THE EMBASSY IN RESPONSE TO OUR REQUEST (REFTEL) AND, ON CLAES' INSTRUCTIONS, PROVIDED US WITH A LENGTHY BRIEFING ON WHAT NOW APPEAR TO BE VERY MAJOR OBSTACLES IN THE WAY OF A POSITIVE BELGIAN GOVERNMENT DECISION ON TNF MODERNIZATION FOR THE DECEMBER NATO CONFIDENTIAL CONFIDENTIAL PAGE 03 BRUSSE 21425 01 OF 03 052225Z MINISTERIALS. WILLEMS (WHO WAS THE SOURCE OF THE EARLIER REPORT IN REFTEL) ALSO ADDED SOME SIDELIGHTS AND SPECULATION OF HIS OWN. (STRICTLY PROTECT BOTH WILLEMS AND CLAES.) 4. A KEY POINT IN THE CLAES, VIA WILLEMS, RUNDOWN OF THE SITUATION IS THAT THERE IS VERY HEAVY OPPOSITION TO A DECEMBER TNF DECISION IN THE FLEMISH SOCIALIST PARTY (BSP) AND, ACCORDING TO REMARKS MADE BY FRANCOPHONE SOCIALIST PARTY PRESIDENT (PS) ANDRE COOLS TO CLAES DECEMBER 4, THE SITUATION IS JUST AS BAD, IF NOT WORSE, IN THE PS. 5. WILLEMS' FIRST MAJOR THEME WAS THE CURRENT VERY SHAKY STATE OF THE BELGIAN GOVERNMENT, WHICH HE DESCRIBED AS "PARALYZED BY A CONVERGENCE OF DOMESTIC ISSUES," NOTABLY INCLUDING ECONOMIC AND LINGUISTIC COMMUNITY AFFAIRS (BRUSSELS 21299). THE FLEMISH SOCIAL CHRISTIANS (CVP) HAVE REFUSED TO GO ALONG WITH THE GOVERNMENT'S REGIONALI- ZATION PROGRAM (ALTHOUGH THE BSP HAS REMAINED LOYAL). THE CVP MAY WELL TOPPLE THE GOVERNMENT WITH ITS MEETING ON DECEMBER 16 AT WHICH IT WILL MAKE FORMAL ITS HARD-LINE
  3. 3. Sheryl P. Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 Sheryl P. Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 POSITIONS ON STATE REFORM (E.G. RE BRUSSELS). IN RETALIA- TION TO THE CVP'S PRONOUNCEMENTS ON COMMUNITY ISSUES, THE FRANCOPHONE SOCIALISTS ARE REFUSING TO VOTE A SINGLE ARTICLE IN THE GOVERNMENT'S PROGRAM OF URGENT ECONOMIC MEASURES. IN CLAES' WORDS (ON HIS RECENT RETURN FROM CHINA), "EVERYTHING IS PARALYZED." THE GOVERNMENT, WILLEMS CONTINUED, "COULD TOPPLE TOMORROW. WE COULD BE GOING TO ELECTIONS IN FOUR OR FIVE WEEKS, AND IT WOULD BE A DISASTER FOR US IF A TNF DECISION WAS THE ONLY THING THAT THE GOVERNMENT COULD POINT TO AS HAVING DONE."

  4. 4. Sheryl P. Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 Sheryl P. Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 SITUATION, WILLEMS WENT ON, TNF UNFORTUNATELY HAS NOW BECOME AN ESSENTIALLY INTERNAL MATTER. IF THE CVP IS TO PRECIPITATE A CRISIS, HE AGAIN STRESSED, THE BSP MUST THINK OF POSSIBLE ELECTIONS. IN THIS CRITICAL POLITICAL CONTEXT, MOREOVER, THE FEELING IS STRONG CONFIDENTIAL CONFIDENTIAL PAGE 02 BRUSSE 21425 02 OF 03 052229Z AMONG BELGIAN LEADERS THAT SAVING THE GOVERNMENT IS THE HIGHEST PRIORITY. 7. WILLEMS SAID THAT BSP PARTY PRESIDENT KAREL VAN MIERT HAS FLATLY SAID THAT, IF THE GOVERNMENT TRIES TO PROCEED WITH A POSITIVE TNF DECISION, THE BSP MINISTERS WILL LEAVE THE CABINET. IF ANY BSP MINISTERS OPPOSE HIM ON THIS STEP, HE WILL CALL A PARTY CONGRESS AND (WILLEMS PREDICTED) WOULD EASILY WIN APPROVAL FOR HIS POSITION. VAN MIERT, WHO HAS BEEN OVERRULED BY HIS MINISTERS IN THE PAST, IS NOW DETERMINED TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT HE IS THE LEADER OF HIS PARTY. HE ALSO WANTS TO SETTLE ACCOUNTS WITH SIMONET IN RETURN FOR THE LATTER'S HANDLING OF VAN MIERT'S RECENT POLEMIC WITH THE ZAIRIAN AMBASSADOR. VAN MIERT THUS SEES TNF AS AN EXCELLENT ISSUE ON WHICH TO GET EVEN WITH SIMONET. AS VAN MIERT AND OTHERS IN THE BSP SEE IT, MOREOVER, A NEGATIVE, OR AT LEAST DELAYING STANCE ON TNF WILL BE A POLITICAL ASSET WITH THEIR CONSTITUENCY, SINCE SOCIALISM IN BELGIUM HAS TRADITIONALLY BEEN "ANTI-MILITARISTIC" IN GENERAL, AND OPPOSED IN PARTICULAR TO NUCLEAR WEAPONS AND DEFENSE SPENDING. SUCH A POSITION IS PARTICULARLY APPEALING, HE NOTED, DURING AN ECONOMIC CRISIS. 8. IN RESPONSE TO OUR STRONG EXPOSITION OF THE STAKES AT ISSUE (IN WHICH WE WERE PREACHING TO AN ALREADY CONVINCED LISTENER), WILLEMS SAID THAT THE BELGIAN PUBLIC AND MOST POLITICIANS ARE JUST NOT REALLY CONCERNED WITH THE SOVIET THREAT, THE IMPACT ON THE ALLIANCE OF A POSTPONEMENT IN THE DECEMBER DECISION, OR THE EFFECT A BELGIAN FAILURE TO REACH A POSITIVE DECISION WOULD HAVE FOR BELGIUM'S RELATIONS WITH ITS ALLIANCE PARTNERS AND FOR ITS NATIONAL IMAGE. THE GOVERNMENT, SAID WILLEMS, HAD DONE TOO LITTLE TOO LATE IN TERMS OF EDUCATING THE CONFIDENTIAL CONFIDENTIAL PAGE 03 BRUSSE 21425 02 OF 03 052229Z BODY POLITIC ON THE ISSUES AND IMPLICATIONS INVOLVED. HE POINTED OUT THAT SIMONET'S MFA-DEVELOPED POSITION PAPER WAS NOT DISTRIBUTED TO THE CABINET UNTIL NOVEMBER 16 NOR TO THE PARTY PRESIDENTS UNTIL NOVEMBER 19.
  5. 5. Sheryl P. Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 Sheryl P. Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 SIMONET WAS OFF TRAVELLING INSTEAD OF LOBBYING KEY POLITICIANS, AND WHEN THE MEDIA AND EARLY OPPONENTS SUCH AS TOBBACK--AND THE BSP'S PARTY BUREAU--MADE SWEEPING ASSERTIONS ON DECOUPLING AND THE LIKE, NO ONE BOTHERED TO GET REFUTATIONS QUICKLY ON THE RECORD. WILLEMS ALSO SAID THAT SIMONET HAS A PERSONAL PROBLEM WITH MEMBERS OF THE PARLIAMENTARY FOREIGN AFFAIRS COMMITTEES WHO ARE VIRTUALLY UNANIMOUS IN RESENTING WHAT THEY SEE AS HIS ARROGANT AND CONDESCENDING ATTITUDE WHENEVER HE APPEARS BEFORE THEM. THEY COULD USE TNF AS A WAY OF TEACHING HIM A LESSON. 9. WILLEMS ALSO SAID THAT SIMONET HAD AROUSED IRE BY TRYING TO SLIP TNF THROUGH IN A NON-DEMOCRATIC MANNER. THIS HAD NOT WORKED BECAUSE OF THE INTENSIFICATION OF INTRA-GOVERNMENT DISAGREEMENT OVER THE DOMESTIC ISSUES DESCRIBED ABOVE. IN ADDITION, THE LACK OF AN OPEN AND ACTIVE EFFORT TO SELL TNF HAD LEFT A VACUUM FOR PEOPLE LIKE TOBBACK, AND ALSO FOR THE SEEPAGE OF NEGATIVE VIEWS FROM THE NETHERLANDS. 10. ACCORDING TO WILLEMS, A MUCH SHAKEN SIMONET IS NOW TRYING HARD TO SALVAGE THE SITUATION. HE IS WORKING VIGOROUSLY ON PREPARING FOR TOMORROW'S PARLIAMENTARY INTERPELLATIONS, AND WILL UNDOUBTEDLY SPEAK ELOQUENTLY FOR TNF MODERNIZATION. SIMILARLY SIMONET IS PREPARING HIS SPEECH FOR THE DECEMBER 8 FRANCOPHONE SOCIALIST (PS) COUNCIL MEETING, WHICH WILL FORMALIZE A PARTY STAND ON TNF, BUT HE IS UNLIKELY TO WIN OVER A MAJORITY OF HIS CONFIDENTIAL NNN CONFIDENTIAL PAGE 01 BRUSSE 21425 03 OF 03 052237Z ACTION PM-06 INFO OCT-01 EUR-12 ADS-00 CIAE-00 INR-10 L-03 ACDA-12 NSAE-00 PA-01 SS-15 SP-02 TRSE-00 IO-14 EB-08 NRC-02 OES-09 DOE-17 CEQ-01 SAS-02 NSCE-00 SSO-00 ICAE-00 INRE-00 /115 W ------------------083514 052243Z /70 O 052151Z DEC 79 FM AMEMBASSY BRUSSELS TO SECSTATE WASHDC IMMEDIATE 7638 INFO SECDEF WASHDC IMMEDIATE USMISSION USNATO IMMEDIATE AMEMBASSY ANKARA PRIORITY AMEMBASSY ATHENS PRIORITY

THE VISIT TO BRUSSELS THIS WEEK OF DUTCH PRIME MINISTER VAN AGT HAS PROBABLY COMPLICATED MATTERS STILL FURTHER. WILLEMS UNDERSTANDS THAT VAN AGT REPORTED TO HIS BELGIAN INTERLOCUTORS THAT THE SITUATION IN THE DUTCH CONFIDENTIAL CONFIDENTIAL PAGE 02 BRUSSE 21425 03 OF 03 052237Z PARLIAMENT IS VERY GLOOMY. ALL IN ALL, WILLEMS SEES CONSIDERABLE CHANCE THAT, BY THE TIME OF NEXT WEEK'S NATO MEETINGS, BELGIUM, THE NETHERLANDS, AND DENMARK MAY BE WORKING TOGETHER IN SUPPORT OF A SIX-MONTH DELAY IN A NATO TNF DECISION. 12. APPARENTLY WITHOUT THE EXPLICIT APPROVAL OF CLAES, WILLEMS SAID THAT, WHILE HERE, VAN AGT HAD "WAVED AROUND" A COPY OF A TELEX THAT HE SAID HE HAD RECENTLY SENT TO SOVIET CHAIRMAN BREZHNEV. NEITHER WILLEMS NOR CLAES KNEW THE EXACT CONTENT OF THE MESSAGE, BUT HAD THE IMPRESSION THAT IN SOME WAY IT CONFIDED TO BREZHNEV VAN AGT'S DOMESTIC POLITICAL PROBLEMS OVER THE TNF ISSUE, AND THEY THOUGHT THAT IT MAY HAVE GONE SO FAR AS TO SUGGEST SOME "BREZHNEV INITIATIVE" THAT COULD HELP SOLVE THOSE PROBLEMS. WHEN WE EXPRESSED ASTONISHMENT, WILLEMS SAID THAT THIS HAD ALSO BEEN CLAES' REACTION. THIS EPISODE, PLUS COOLS' REMARK TO THE GDR DELEGATION (REPORTED REFTEL), HAS REINFORCED IN CLAES A SENSE OF HOPELESSNESS IN FIGHTING WHAT HE SEES AS A LOSING POLITICAL BATTLE IN DOMESTIC TERMS, WHILE OTHERS ARE DEMONSTRATING SUCH IRRESPONSIBILITY IN DEALING ON THE ISSUE WITH THE WEST'S ADVERSARIES. WILLEMS ADMITTED THAT HE HAD ADVISED CLAES THAT, WITH THE ODDS IN THE FLEMISH SOCIALIST PARTY SO HEAVILY STACKED AGAINST A FAVORABLE

Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 TNF STAND, THE MINISTER WOULD HAVE TO GIVE SOME CONSIDERA- TION TO HIS OWN POLITICAL FUTURE BEFORE DECIDING TO TILT AT A WINDMILL. 13. WILLEMS HAD SOME BITTER WORDS FOR THE RETICENT SOCIAL CHRISTIAN STANCE TO DATE ON THE TNF ISSUE, CITING ESPECIALLY FLEMISH SOCIAL CHRISTIAN (CVP) PRESIDENT LEO TINDEMANS. ASKING WHY "OUR CONSERVATIVE PARTIES ARE NOT CONFIDENTIAL CONFIDENTIAL PAGE 03 BRUSSE 21425 03 OF 03 052237Z SPEAKING OUT," WILLEMS SAID THAT TINDEMANS DOES NOT WANT TO TAKE ANY RISKS WITH FLEMISH VOTERS AND IS SITTING BACK TO SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN. AS FOR MARTENS, WILLEMS SAID, THE PRIME MINISTER IS BEING VERY CAREFUL ABOUT SHOWING OPEN SUPPORT FOR THE MODERNIZATION PLAN IN VIEW OF HIS WEAK POSITION IN THE CVP VIS-A-VIS TINDEMANS. HE IS ALSO MUCH LESS FAMILIAR WITH MILITARY ISSUES THAN WITH THE OTHER PROBLEMS PLAGUING HIM. TURNING TO THE FRANCOPHONE SOCIAL CHRISTIANS (PSC), WILLEMS THOUGHT THE MOVE OF FORMER DEFENSE MINISTER VANDEN BOEYNANTS ("VDB") FROM THE CABINET TO THE PRESIDENCY OF THE PARTY WAS A NET LOSS IN TERMS OF GARNERING PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR TNF. HE ALSO WONDERED WHETHER IT SHOWED A CANNY VDB SENSE OF TIMING TO REMOVE HIMSELF FROM DIRECT RESPONSIBILITY FOR A FOREDOOMED SALES EFFORT ON A MAJOR NATO ISSUE. 14. RECOMMENDATIONS: GIVEN THIS VERY BLEAK PROGNOSIS, WE FEEL THAT THE TIME HAS CLEARLY COME FOR STRONG RENEWED EXPRESSIONS FROM THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF THE USG ON THE SERIOUS IMPLICATIONS THAT ANY BELGIAN FAILURE TO SUPPORT A FAVORABLE NATO DECISION ON TNF NEXT WEEK WOULD HAVE FOR THE NATO ALLIANCE. WITH SO MANY BELGIAN LEADERS AND POLITICIANS NOW SO NARROWLY FOCUSSED ON DOMESTIC POLITICAL PROBLEMS, SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE TO TRY TO DIRECT THEIR ATTENTION TO THE LARGER PICTURE. SOME POSSIBLE AVENUES OF APPROACH WERE OUTLINED IN STATE 312350. WE PARTICULARLY SUGGEST FOR CONSIDERATION A HIGH-LEVEL COMMUNICATION TO PRIME MINISTER MARTENS WITH INSTRUCTIONS THAT WE DELIVER COPIES TO VICE PRIME MINISTERS GUY SPITAELS, WILLY CLAES, AND JOSE DESMARETS. ON ARRIVAL OF THE MESSAGES THIS DISTRIBUTION COULD BE COORDINATED WITH MARTENS AND SIMONET. CHAMBERS CONFIDENTIAL NNN
