    The Foreign Minister, Maurice Schumann arrived in Bucharest on Monday (29 Jan.) for two days of discussions with Rumanian government officials.

    During the talks, he told his Rumanian counterpart, George Macovescu, that France had made a political decision to support Rumania in its efforts to get a better deal from the European Economic Community.

    Rumania wants preferential tariff treatment from the E.E.c., and France backs the request on the grounds that Rumania was the first East European country to ask for links with the Common Market.

    He said his visit was very satisfying...that there were no political differences to eliminate. He said that Rumania and France had the same conception about the future of Europe.
