  • Description

    HOPES THAT SOME RECONCILIATION CAN BE REACHED BETWEEN COMMON MARKET AND BRITISH ECONOMIC INTERESTS WERE VOICED TODAY (TUESDAY) BY THE FRENCH PREMIER, MONSIEUR POMPIDOU.HE BELIEVED BRITAIN WOULD ONE DAY JOIN THE SIX, BUT FOR THE PRESENT THE NASSAU AGREEMENT SHOWED SHE HAD DECIDED TO TURN TOWARDS AMERICA.

    THE FRENCH PREMIER WAS ANSWERING QUESTIONS AT A PRESS LUNCHEON ATTENDED BY 200 FRENCH AND FOREIGN NEWSMEN.HE TOLD THEM THAT IN HIS VIEW AMERICA WAS BEGINNING TO FEAR THE COMMON MARKET BECAUSE IT HAD BECOME TOO VIGOROUS AND MIGHT CONSTITUTE BARRIER TOO DIFFICULT FOR AMERICAN TRADE TO OVERCOME.

    TO ONE QUESTIONER, HE DENIED THAT ANY TALKS ARE GOING ON BETWEEN FRANCE AND RUSSIA.AND TO ANOTHER, ON THE COMMON MARKET AGAIN, HE SAID THAT THE DOOR TO EUROPE IS NOT SHUT ON BRITAIN, THOUGH AT THE PRESENT TIME BRITAIN IS NOT IN A POSITION TO ACCEPT THE TREATY OF ROME AS IT STANDS.

    ASKED WHETHER FRANCE WAS DISPOSED TO HELP BRITAIN AFTER THE BRUSSELS BREAKDOWN, MR.POMPIDOU SAID THE QUESTION DID NOT ARISE AS BRITAIN WAS NOT IN NEED OF EXTERNAL HELP.FRANCE HOPED THAT PENDING EVENTUAL BRITISH ENTRY, IT WOULD BE POSSIBLE TO FIND WAYS RECONCILING THE ECONOMIC INTERESTS OF BRITAIN AND EUROPE.
