  • Description

    Hope of better relations between France and Tunisia was seen on June 22 with the return to Tunis of the French Ambassador, M. Georges Gorse.

    The Ambassador, who has not been in Tunis since before the bombing by French aircraft of the Tunisian village of Sakiet in February, told a reporter at the airport that he was hoping to confer with President Habib Bourguiba of Tunisia soon.

    The return of the Ambassador comes a weak after France's promise to withdraw 7,000 French troops from Tunisia within the next four months. Tunisia, a former French Protectorate, has repeatedly demanded the evacuation of the troops from her soil.

    The promise, made in an agreement reached on June 17 between the two countries, will open the way for other problems outstanding to be solved. One of them includes more concrete recognition by France of Tunisian territorial sovereignty governing the Biserta Naval Base, an important Tunisian port, held by France.
