    SYNOPSIS: The leader of the Soviet Communist party, Leonid Brezhnev, received a warm welcome when he arrived at the Renault car factory in Flins, near Paris on Friday. He's in France on an official six-day visit.

    The state-owned Renault combine has just signed a contract to help build a giant truck factory on the banks of the Kama river in Russia. It's worth up to ninety two million pounds sterling.

    The visit to Renault was the last in a busy round of sightseeing tours. Friday's sightseeing was cut short to enable an extra round of talks with President Georges Pompidou. The two leaders had already spent about nine hours together since Mr. Brezhnev arrived last Monday. One of the questions thought to have occupied them was the vote in the British Houses of Parliament in favour of British entry into the European Common Market.
