    Background: The President of the european Economic Community (E.E.C.) Commission, M. Francois-Xavier Ortoli, had talks on Tuesday (19 February) with the Japanese Foreign Minister, Mr. Masayoshi Ohira, and later with the Prime minister, Mr. Kakuei Tanaka. The meeting with Mr. Ohira was at the Foreign Ministry in central Tokyo, and that with the Prime Minister at Mr. Tanaka's official residence.

    Although details of the talks were not released, japanese officials had emphasised beforehand that the chief problems between Japan and the community were the unfavourable balance of bilateral trade, and the restrictions on the import to Europe of some japanese products. They specifically cited tape recorders to Italy, electronic equipment to the Benelux countries and zip fasteners throughout the EEC.

    M. Ortoli had arrived on Monday (18 February) on a six-day visit as the guest of the Japanese Government. He was accompanied by his wife and six officials. During his stay, he is also expected to have an audience with Emperor Hirohito, as well as holding technical talks with other ministers and officials.

    On the day he arrived, M. Ortoli met the Japanese Trade and Industry Minister, Mr. Yasuhiro Nakasone. They discussed the problem of direct-deal oil buying form oil-producing countries by Japan and various European states, especially France. M. Ortoli put forward the idea of an economic agreement between Japan and the EEC.
