ABSTRACT
The article reports that there was a renewed criticism of the Baghdad Pact by France premier M. Mollet and there was an indications that he and his advisers want to convene a Middle Eastern conference, with the participation of as many states in the region as possible. A Middle Eastern conference would enable the French to reintroduce themselves into the picture, mediate between Egypt, Syria and Israel, and lay the groundwork for replacing the tripartite American-British control of the region by a quadripartite arrangement including the Soviet Union. If this project can be sold to the Soviet Government, France will have scored a major diplomatic triumph.
