  • Description

    MR. CHRISTOPHER SOAMES, THE BRITISH AMBASSADOR TO FRANCE, CONFERRED WITH FRENCH FOREIGN MINISTER MICHAEL DEBRE IN PARIS TONIGHT (SATURDAY). THE TWO MEN MET FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES DISCUSSING THE ANGLO-FRENCH STORM OVER BRITISH REPORTS THAT FRENCH PRESIDENT DE GAULLE SUGGESTED SWEEPING NEW ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE ECONOMIC REORGANISATION OF WESTERN EUROPE DURING HIS MEETING WITH THE AMBASSADOR ON FEBRUARY 4.

    IN LONDON, TONIGHT, BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY MICHAEL STEWART COMMENTED UPON THE BRITISH VIEW OF GENERAL DE GAULLE'S CONVERSATION.

    AT THE END OF HIS MEETING WITH THE FRENCH FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. SOAMES ANSWERED REPORTERS' QUESTIONS BY REPORTEDLY SAYING ONLY "NO COMMENT". MR. SOAMES IS TO FLY TO LONDON TOMORROW (SUNDAY) FOR TALKS WITH MRS. STEWART AND BRITISH PRIME MINISTER WILSON.

    FRENCH SOURCES IN PARIS HAVE SAID THAT THE BRITISH HAD DISTORTED THE SENSE OF WHAT PRESIDENT DE GAULLE SAID TO MR. SOAMES. BRITISH OFFICIALS, HOWEVER, MAINTAIN THAT THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT HAD AGREED THAT MR. SOAMES' RECORD OF THE CONVERSATION WAS ACCURATE AND THAT IT IS, THEREFORE, THE CORRECT ONE.

    MR. STEWART, IN A TELEVISED INTERVIEW, DISCUSSED NATO AND THE COMMON MARKET, BOTH OF WHICH WERE INCLUDED IN PRESIDENT DE GAULLE'S CONVERSATION WITH MR. SOAMES.
