  • Description

    FRENCH PRESIDENT GEORGES POMPIDOU SAID IN NEW YORK YESTERDAY (TUESDAY, MARCH 3RD) THAT HE AND PRESIDENT NIXON HAVE REACHED A FULL UNDERSTANDING ON THE PROBLEMS OF FRANCE AND THE UNITED STATES. AT HIS FINAL NEWS CONFERENCE BEFORE LEAVING AMERICA, MR POMPIDOU SAID: "WE DON'T SEE EYE TO EYE ON ALL POINTS, BUT WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR THE SAME OBJECTIVE, AND THAT IS WORLD PEACE."
    THE FRENCH LEADER ALSO EXPLAINED WHY HE CANCELLED A MEETING ON MONDAY WITH JEWISH LEADERS. HE SAID HIS SECURITY MEN WANTED TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF MOVEMENTS HE MADE. "BUT," HE ADDED, "PERHAPS THE REAL REASON IS MORE FUNDAMENTAL. THERE COMES A TIME WHEN SUCH MEETINGS ARE UNNECESSARY AND EVEN DETRIMENTAL."
    ASKED IF FRANCE PLANNED TO DELIVER TO ISRAEL A NUMBER OF WAR PLANES ALREADY PAID FOR, HE REPLIED: "IN THE PRESENT CIRCUMSTANCES, AS LONG AS WAR EXISTS, THE ANSWER IS NO." REGARDING THE LIBYAN PLANE DEAD, HE SAID FRANCE "DIDN'T SET OUT TO SELL PLANES. WE SET OUT TO FILL A VOID AND WE'D RATHER FILL IT THAN HAVE SOMEONE ELSE DO IT."
