  • Description

    PRESIDENT DE GAULLE OF FRANCE RECEIVED THREE STANDING OVATIONS BY DEPUTIES WHEN HE ADDRESSED THE RUMANIAN NATIONAL ASSEMBLY TODAY (WEDNESDAY). THE THEME OF THE GENERAL'S SPEECH WAS AN EMPHASIS ON THE ASSERTION OF NATIONAL POLICIES BY FRANCE AND RUMANIA.

    PRESIDENT DE GAULLE SAID THAT IF THE NATIONS OF EUROPE WERE LEFT TO SHAPE THEIR NATIONAL DESTINIES THEY COULD SOLVE THEIR OWN PROBLEMS - NOTABLY GERMANY AND SECURITY. HE SAID THAT FRANCE IN EFFECT HAD "DISENGAGED HERSELF, CERTAINLY NOT FROM HER WESTERN FRIENDS, BUT FROM ALL ATLANTIC SUBORDINATION WHETHER POLITICAL, MILITARY OR MONETARY." THE PACKED ASSEMBLY ROSE THREE TIMES IN STANDING OVATIONS AS THE FRENCH PRESIDENT STRESSED THE NEED TO DISSOLVE WHAT HE CALLED MENACING AND STERILE BLOCS. GENERAL DE GAULLE ENDED HIS 16 MINUTE SPEECH WITH AN APPEAL FOR THE ADVANCED COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD TO PROVIDE MASSIVE AID TO THE OTHERS. PRESIDENT NICOLAE CEAUSESCU OF RUMANIA SAT CLOSE TO THE GENERAL DURING HIS SPEECH.

    SO ENDED THE SECOND DAY OF THE FRENCH PRESIDENT'S FIVE DAY STATE VISIT TO RUMANIA - HIS THIRD TO EASTERN EUROPE IN RECENT YEARS.
