    SYNOPSIS: Ten Foreign Ministers from the six Common Market countries and the four applicant nations met here at the Quai d'Orsay in Paris on Tuesday. This is the home of the French Foreign Ministry. Britain's Sir Alec Douglas Home took part.

    Herr Franck of the West German Foreign Ministry was among his country's representatives.

    Norway, another of the applicant nations, took part. So too, did Denmark and Ireland.

    Belgium's Foreign Minister also attended. France, Luxembourg and Italy were in the meeting as well.

    The ten ministers discussed a wide range of topics. Among the subjects touched upon was the Middle East. The Ministers agreed to support current American efforts for the re-opening of the Suez Canal as part of an overall settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

    The ministers also spoke on East-West relations and ways of increasing cooperation on mutual issues. The British and French Foreign Ministers met later on Tuesday in Paris to set the stage for this week's vital summit meeting on the Common Market between President Georges Pompidou and Prime Minister Edward Health.
