    Background: THE CRUCIAL NATO TALKS ENDED IN BRUSSELS TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY) WITH A LAST-MINUTE COMPROMISE BETWEEN FRANCE AND HER 14 PARTNERS IN THE NORTH ATLANTIC ALLIANCE. THEY REACHED AGREEMENT ON HOW TO HANDLE NEGOTIATIONS ON THE FUTURE ROLE OF FRENCH FORCES IN WEST GERMANY.

    THE NEGOTIATIONS WILL TAKE PLACE AT THE NATO PERMANENT COUNCIL - THE ALLIANCE'S TOP POLITICAL BODY - IN PARIS. THE AGREEMENT, ALTHOUGH PURELY PROCEDURAL, BROKE A TWO-DAY DEADLOCK AMONG THE 15 MINISTERS.

    FRANCE IS TO WITHDRAW HER FORCES FROM NATO COMMAND, THOUGH NOT NECESSARILY FROM THE ALLIANCE ITSELF, ON JULY 1. THE MAJOR PROBLEM IS THE FUTURE ROLE AND FUNCTIONS OF HER 70,000-STRONG IN WEST GERMANY AND BERLIN.

    FRANCO-GERMAN TALKS ON THE ISSUE WILL START IN BONN ON MONDAY.
