  • Description

    Tunisian President Habib Bourguiba - on a private visit to Italy - visited Rome's Quirinal Palace July 21 for informal talks with President Giovanni Gronchi. He arrived by private car, reviewed a guard-of-honour and proceeded to the Presidential study.

    It was felt that the two Presidents might discuss the dispute on fishing limits between Italy and Tunisia. Tunisian authorities recently confiscated numerous Sicilian fishing boats for fishing within their coastal waters. The Tunisian fishing limits are complicated and sometimes stretch up to 65 miles from the coast. Since the break-down of the Geneva Law of the Sea talks, Sicilian fishing vessels have been pressing for armed defence.

    The Tunisian President recently visited Salsomaggiore - the twin town to Hammam-Lif in his own country - where he received treatment for a throat ailment.
