    Background: A CONFERENCE OF 26 FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES -- AIMED AT SETTING UP AN AGENCY FOR CULTURAL AND TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION -- WAS OPENED IN NIAMEY BY NIGER'S PRESIDENT HAMANI DIORI ON MONDAY (MARCH 16).

    DELEGATES FROM FOUR CONTINENTS ATTENDED THE CONFERENCE, WHICH WAS DUE TO END TODAY (THURSDAY).

    AT THE OPENING CEREMONY, PRESIDENT DIORI SAID THAT THE INTERNATIONAL AGENCY WOULD INITIATE A NEW CONCEPT IN CO-OPERATION.

    HE BELIEVED THAT THE DELEGATES FROM AFRICA, AMERICA, ASIA AND EUROPE TOGETHER REPRESENTED THE MOST IMPORTANT CURRENTS IN WORLD CIVILISATION.

    THE PRESIDENT ADDED THAT THE AGENCY SHOULD WORK TO PRESERVE AND FOSTER THE DISTINCT CULTURES OF EACH COUNTRY -- REVERSING THE "UNFORTUNATE" MODERN TREND OF ATTEMPTING TO IMPOSE CULTURAL UNIFORMITY. RICH AND POOR COUNTRIES HAD DRAWN TOGETHER TO CREATE REAL UNITY, HE SAID.

    THE CONFERENCE WENT ON TO FORM A COMMITTEE TO WORK OUT THE CONSTITUTION OF THE NEW AGENCY.
