    INSTEAD, MINISTERS SCHEDULED A REVIEW OF INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS.

    THE FRENCH DELEGATE TO THE TALKS, M. HABIB DELONCLE, STATE SECRETARY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS, TOLD THE OPENING SESSION THAT FRANCE FELT RUSSIA WANTED TO IMPROVE RELATIONS WITH THE WESTERN NATIONS, BUT VIETNAM WAS ONE FACTOR INHIBITING THE CHANCES OF CLOSER ACCORD.

    SPEECHES BY THE BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY, MR. MICHAEL STEWART, MR. JOSEPH LUNS, THE DUTCH FOREIGN MINISTER AND HIS WEST GERMAN COUNTERPART, HERR SCHROEDER, REFERRED TO SINO-SOVIET RELATIONS.
