    Background: PARIS, FRANCE, VATICAN/ROME, ITALY

    President Amin Gemayel of Lebanon hopes all foreign troops will have left Lebanese territory by January 1, 1983. After meeting with French President Francois Mitterrand in Paris on October 20, Mr. Gemayel told a news conference that support for Lebanese sovereignty was the main objective of his visit. The Lebanese leader's first foreign trip which included talks in the United States with President Ronald Reagan ended on October 21 with a visit to Italy. At an unofficial audience in the Vatican, Pope John Paul urged Mr Gemayel to work for solutions to the Middle East and Palestinian problems. The Pontiff also said Lebanon's government should strive for unity among all religions and sects in its country, to create a civilised community in the heart of the Middle East. At his meeting with President Sandro Pertini, Amin Gemayel extended his thanks to Italian troops, which, together with US and French contingents, are currently helping to restore peace in Lebanon. Mr Gemayel has requested 30,000 United Nations troops to help supervise the withdrawal of Israeli, Syrian and Palestinian forces from his country. The United States, France and Italy have pledged support and offered substantial aid.
