Background: M. Jacques Soustelle was called today, Sunday, to the Matignon for consultation with General de Gaulle. He arrived at 10.15 and was in conference until 12.00 a.m.
M. Soustelle was treated to 'a hero's reception' when he fled to Algeria a few week's ago, and there has been much speculation about his possible appointment to the de Gaulle government. Since the Prime Minister's visit to Algeria rumour has placed M Soustelle in a number of high state offices.
In fast at the end of yesterday's meeting it was clear that for the time being M. de Gaulle has no intention just yet of appointing M Soustelle Minister of anything.
