  • Description

    PRESIDENT HAMANI DIORI OF NIGER ARRIVED IN BRUSSELS TODAY (THURSDAY) ON A THREE DAY VISIT. HE HAD INTERVIEWS WITH KING BAUDOUIN AND QUEEN FABIOLA AND WITH GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS.

    PRESIDENT DIORI IS IN BRUSSELS AT THE END OF A THREE WEEK TOUR SOUNDING OUT THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY ON A RENEWAL OF THE ASSOCIATION TREATY BETWEEN THE COMMON MARKET AND 18 AFRICAN AND MALAGASY STATES (O.C.A.M.). BEFORE MEETING THE KING HE HAD TALKS WITH THE BELGIAN PRIME MINISTER, M. GASTON EYSKENS.

    THE NIGER EMBASSY IN BRUSSELS SAID THAT THE PRESIDENT, WHO IS ALSO PRESIDENT OF O.C.A.M., WOULD TEST THE OPINION OF THE COMMUNITY COMMISSION IN BRUSSELS ABOUT POSSIBLE AMENDMENTS AND ADDITIONS TO THE 1963 YAOUDE CONVENTION - THE TREATY OF ASSOCIATION, WHICH EXPIRES IN MAY.

    NIGER SOURCES HAVE SUGGESTED THAT FAR FROM ENJOYING PRIVILEDGES AFFORDED BY THE COMMON MARKET, THE 18 HAVE BEEN TREATED AS 'POOR RELATIONS'. TERMS OF TRADE BETWEEN THE TWO GROUPS HAVE DETERIORATED AS A RESULT OF A DROP IN THE PRICES OF TROPICAL PRODUCTS COMPARED TO A RISE IN PRICES OF MANUFACTURED PRODUCTS FROM INDUSTRIALISED COUNTRIES.

    M. HAMANI DIORI HAS BEEN PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF NIGER SINCE 1960.
