    Background: President Ronald Reagan began a nine day tour of Western Europe on June 3 by visiting French President Francois Mitterrand in Paris. The US leader, who is in Europe mainly for the western nations summit conference beginning at Versailles on June 4, arrived at Orly airport where he was engagement was a meeting with President Mitterand at the Elysee Palace, where he faced questions about US economic policy including high interest rates, and outlined his decision to revive arms limitation talks with the Soviet Union. US officials have described the President's first foreign tour outside the American continent, as the most carefully prepared trip of any US leader to western Europe. At the Versailles Summit the leaders of Britain, France, West Germany, Italy, Canada and Japan are expected to argue that US economic policies especially high interest rates, are draining capital away form Europe and aggravating unemployment there. After Versailles, Mr. Reagan accompanied by Secretary of State Alexander Haig, will go to Rome, London, West Berlin and to a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) meeting in Bonn.
