  • Description

    A four-day meeting of the Franco-Soviet Commission, set up in 1966 to boost cooperation between the two countries, opened in Paris on Tuesday (8 September).

    This is the fifth occasion on which the Grand Commission has met, and the current agenda gives prominence to the prospects of doubling Franco-Soviet trade exchanges within the next five years.

    Soviet Deputy Premier, Vladimir Kirillin, who was heading a 25-man Russian delegation said the meeting had great significance to the development of both countries. Joint major industrial projects were just one aspect of ways in which cooperation was planned.

    M. Giscard D'Estaing, French Finance Minister, spoke of common views on Indochina and other world problems. France, he said, was ready to step up its purchases in the Soviet Union, and his Government had granted the Soviet Union export credits worth 4,000 million francs (307 million sterling) for the purchase of French capital equipment. M.D'Estaing believed the time was right for France and the Soviet Union to solemnly affirm their joint leading role in the struggle for peace in Europe.
