    Background: TOULON AND PARIS, FRANCE

    On July 14, President Francois Mitterrand broke with recent tradition and made a review of the fleet the main event of Bastille Day. Reviewing 35 vessels at the Toulon naval base, President Mitterrand said he was proud to note that France's navy was present in all the seas, especially in the Eastern Mediterranean. Presidential aides said he was referring to the warship Argens, which recently helped evacuate French and other foreign citizens fleeing the conflict in Lebanon. Taking part in the parade was a squadron of Exocet-carrying Super-Etendard aircraft such as those used by Argentina in the conflict with Great Britain over the Falkland Islands. Mr. Mitterrand later flew back to Paris to attend a reception in the grounds of the presidential Elysee Palace. The day's events ended with an evening military parade, which included displays from the army and air force.
