  • Description

    AFTER THE THIRD DAY OF TALKS AT EVIAN, FRANCE, MARCH 9, BETWEEN THE FRENCH AND ALGERIAN NATIONALIST NEGOTIATORS WORKING TO REACH AGREEMENT ON A CEASEFIRE IN ALGERIA, THREE FRENCH MINISTERS, INCLUDING M. LOUIS JOXE, LEADER OF THE DELEGATION, ATTENDED A RECEPTION AT THE CASINO AT EVIAN.

    WITH M. JOXE, AT THE RECEPTION WERE M. BROGLIE, SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE SAHARA AND OVERSEAS TERRITORIES, AND M. ROBERT BURON, MINISTER OF PUBLIC WORKS AND TRANSPORT, A FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE SAHARA AND OVERSEAS TERRITORIES. REPRESENTATIVES OF THE PRESS WERE PRESENT AND EAGERLY TRIED TO QUESTION THE MINSTERS ABOUT THE PROGRESS OF THE TALKS, BUT WERE TOLD NO QUESTIONS COULD BE ANSWERED.

    THE TALKS REACHED A MORE INTENSIVE STAGE THAT DAY, WITH THE DELEGATIONS BEING REDUCED IN THE AFTERNOON TO MINISTERS ONLY. THE DISCUSSIONS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND. A TIGHT SECURITY VEIL REMAINS OVER THE TALKS, BUT IT IS EXPECTED THAT IF PROGRESS CONTINUES, THE CEASEFIRE AGREEMENT WILL BE SIGNED ON MARCH 13 OR 14.

    DISCUSSIONS ON THE MAIN OUTSTANDING ISSUES, CENTRED ON THE QUESTION OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR MAINTAINING ORDER IN THE INTERIM PERIOD OF FOUR TO FIVE MONTHS BETWEEN THE CEASE FIRE AND THE SELF DETERMINATION REFERENDUM, ARE UNDERSTOOD TO HAVE OCCUPIED MOST THE DAY'S TALKS.

    AROUND THE HOTEL DU PARC, WHERE THE TALKS ARE BEING HELD, IS A RIGID SECURITY GUARD. IN THE ABSENCE OF PRESS BRIEFINGS, ONLY SPECULATION SURROUNDS THE ISSUES STILL TO BE AGREED UPON.
