    Background: AUSTRIA WAS CLOSELY QUESTIONED TODAY (THURSDAY) BY HER EFTA (EUROPEAN FREE TRADE ASSOCIATION) PARTNERS ON HER MOVES FOR A FORMAL LINK WITH THE RIVAL EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET TRADING GROUP.

    BUT AN EFTA SPOKESMAN SAID AFTER THE OPENING SESSION OF A TWO-DAY MINISTERIAL COUNCIL MEETING IN EDINBURGH THAT AUSTRIA HAD NOT GIVEN ANY INDICATION WHETHER SHE WAS PREPARED TO LEAVE THE "OUTER SEVEN" AS THE PRICE FOR AN ASSOCIATION WITH THE COMMON MARKET "SIX".

    AUSTRIA IS KNOWN TO WANT LINKS WITH BOTH TRADING GROUPS IF POSSIBLE.

    THE EFTA SPOKESMAN SAID DANISH FOREIGN MINISTER PER HAEKKERUP REPORTED ON TALKS HE HAD YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) IN COPENHAGEN WITH HE WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR DR. LUDWIG ERHARD.

    THE SPOKESMAN QUOTED THE DANISH FOREIGN MINISTER AS SAYING THAT THE DANISH WEST GERMAN AGREEMENT TO EXTEND THEIR LONG TERM TRADING PACT WAS AN ILLUSTRATION OF AN OUTWARD LOOKING POLICY BY WEST GERMANY.

    IMPORTANT TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION AT THE TALKS INCLUDE THE KENNEDY ROUND OF TARIFF CUTTING TALKS, AIMED AT REDUCING TARIFFS ON A WORLD-WIDE SCALE AND CONTACTS BETWEEN THE EFTA AND THE COMMON MARKET.

    THE EFTA COUNTRIES ARE BRITAIN, AUSTRIA, DENMARK, NORWAY, PORTUGAL, SWITZERLAND AND SWEDEN.
