    POMPIDOU: "Mr. President, it is with particular pleasure that we receive you today in Paris, and wish you welcome, yourself, Madame Traore and the high dignitaries who accompany you. In the first place this is because this visit represents an important landmark since it is the first visit to France by a Malian head of state since Mali regained its independence."

    Background: Colonel Moussa Traore, President of Mali, arrived in Paris on Monday at the start of a five-day official visit to France. He was welcomed at Orly Airport by President Pompidou, and the two leaders then went to the Elysee Palace, where they exchanged formal messages of greeting.

    The Mali Government is reported to be anxious for full reintegration into the Franc Zone, and enjoy the same advantages received by other former French territories in Africa. France has singed aid agreements with Mali and their two currencies became convertible in 1968 after a break of six years.

    But when President Traore applied in 1970 for full integration into the Franc Zone, France replied that such a move could only follow economic and financial reforms by the Mali military regime.
