    PRESIDENT HAMANI DIORI OF NIGER HAS BEEN TOURING NORTH AFRICA IN CONNECTION WITH A PLAN FOR A COMMONWEALTH OF FRENCH-SPEAKING AFRICAN STATES. THE TOUR ENDED ON WEDNESDAY WHEN HE HAD TALKS IN RABAT WITH KING HASSAN OF MOROCCO.

    THE PLAN WAS DISCUSSED IN DEPTH AT THE RECENT SUMMIT IN TANANARIVE OF THE AFRO-MALAGASY COMMON ORGANISATION, OCAM. AS THE NEW PRESIDENT OF THE FRENCH-SPEAKING AFRICAN BLOC, M. DIORI WAS GIVEN THE TASK OF EXCHANGING VIEWS ON THE IDEA WITH FORMER FRENCH TERRITORIES IN NORTH AFRICA.
