    AT THE ELYSEE PALACE YESTERDAY (MONDAY), FRANCE'S PRESIDENT GEORGES POMPIDOU PLAYED HOST AT A LUNCHEON FOR THREE AFRICAN HEADS OF STATE - PRESIDENTS MOKTAR OULD DADDAH OF MAURITANIA, SANGOULE LAMIZANA OF UPPER VOLTA, AND AHMADOU AHIDJO OF CAMEROUN.

    THE FIRST TO TAKE THEIR LEAVE FROM THE FRENCH PRESIDENT AFTER LUNCH, WERE PRESIDENTS OULD DADDAH AND LAMIZANA - BOTH OF WHOM REPORTED THAT THE LUNCHEON HAD BEEN A PRIVATE AFFAIR AND NO PARTICULAR PROBLEMS HAD BEEN DISCUSSED. PRESIDENT OULD DADDAH ALSO TOLD REPORTERS THAT HE HOPED A "RAPPROCHEMENT" BETWEEN AFRICAN STATES WOULD EMERGE FROM THE ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNITY (O.A.U.) SUMMIT MEETING WHICH IS TO TAKE PLACE IN ADDIS ABABA ON SATURDAY (SEPTEMBER 6).

    CAMEROUN'S PRESIDENT AHIDJO REMAINED AT THE ELYSEE AFTER THE RECEPTION FOR A 45-MINUTE CONVERSATION WITH PRESIDENT POMPIDOU AND, AFTER SAYING HIS FAREWELLS TO THE FRENCH HEAD OF STATE, MR. AHIDJO SPOKE TO REPORTERS. HE SAID THAT THEY HAD DISCUSSED FRANCO-CAMEROUN CO-OPERATION AND AFRICAN POLITICAL PROBLEMS. HE ADDED THAT HE WAS CERTAIN THAT FRENCH AID TO AFRICA WOULD NOT BE AFFECTED BY FRANCE'S POST-DEVALUATION AUSTERITY PROGRAMME.

    THE THREE AFRICAN PRESIDENTS WILL MEET AGAIN AT THE GAU MEETINGS, WHERE FRANCE WILL BE REPRESENTED BY PRIME MINISTER JACQUES CHABAN DELMAS.
