  • Description

    THE COMMON MARKET MINISTERIAL COUNCIL MET IN BRUSSELS TODAY (MONDAY) FOR DISCUSSIONS COVERING THE "CHICKEN WAR" WITH THE UNITED STATES.AT THE SAME TIME ITS MEMBER RESPONSIBLE FOR RELATIONS WITH THIRD COUNTRIES, M.JEAN REY, WAS HAVING LAST-MINUTE TALKS WITH THE U.S.AMBASSADOR TO THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES.

    THERE IS THOUGHT TO BE SOME CHANGE OF A COMPROMISE WITH AMERICA ON THE E.E.C'S IMPORT CHARGES ON FROZEN CHICKENS IF A SMALL ADDITIONAL GESTURE WERE MADE BY THE COUNCIL.

    THE MINISTERS HAVE LONG BEEN EXPECTED TO DECIDE DURING THEIR TWO-DAY MEETING HERE TO CUT THE TARIFF BY 10 PER CENT, OR AT LEAST 11 PFENNIGS PER KILO.BUT THE AMERICANS HAVE INTIMATED SO FAR THAT SUCH A REDUCTION WOULD BE INSUFFICIENT, AND THEY WOULD HAVE TO PRESS AHEAD WITH RETALIATORY TRADE MEASURES AGAINST THE COMMUNITY.

    THERE IS A GROWING FEELING IN DIPLOMATIC CIRCLES IN BRUSSELS THAT THE WHOLE QUESTION OF IMPORTS OF AMERICAN CHICKENS HAS BEEN INFLATED ON THE INTERNATIONAL SCENE OUT OF ALL RELATION TO ITS REAL IMPORTANCE, AND THAT THE SOONER IT IS SOLVED THE BETTER.

    THE DEBATE ON HOW TO END THE DISPUTE IS EXPECTED TO BE HELD TOMORROW.OTHER IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO BE DISCUSSED THEN ARE THE COMMUNITY'S TRADE RELATIONS WITH THE SOVIET UNION, PREPARATIONS FOR THE "KENNEDY ROUND" OF TARIFF NEGOTIATIONS, AND THE AGENDA FOR THE FORTHCOMING EUROPEAN FISHERIES CONFERENCE IN LONDON.
