Numerous government offices in the capital were either closed or operated with reduced staffs and most private concerns in the downtown El Conde area were closed. While many employees probably remained home to avoid becoming involved in expected disorders, the strike appears to have some popular support in view of the general feeling of repugnance over the shooting of the students. The decision by Bosch's PRD yesterday to back the work stoppage 'added iinpetus to the strike call. In an effort to present the strike as a "spontaneous move- ment" against the military, PRD leaders plan to with- hold any public announcement of support. Should Rivera depart the country, the strikers will claim success and Bosch apparently plans to step forward and hypocriti- cally call for an end to the strike. ping of 9 February a strike committee was forme around the Dominican Revolutionary Party's (PRD) radical labor leader, Miguel Soto.

The current incidents,, reportedly planned in ad- vance by aggressive young Moorish extremists, bean on 8 February with attacks on Negro students in the Nouakchott high schools. On 9 February, roving bands of Moors attacked Negro houses in the native quarter and pitched battles with clubs occurred. *Although small-scale attacks on Negroes were reported yesterday, troops were present in force in the capital and appeared capable of limiting violence there. The schools have been closed temporarily and possibly for the remainder of the academic year. The Negro minority--25 percent of the popula- tion--holds most of the country's jobs requiring literate or semi-skilled workers, including the civil service. The French-speaking Negroes lack cohesion and leader- ship, but appear to be united in their opposition to new requirements on the use of the Arabic language and to the militancy of the politically dominant Moors. If they believe they are seriously threatened, they almost certainly will seek help from their tribal relatives in Senegal. President Moktar Ould Daddah, who was out of the country when the violence began, now has returned. His firm handling of a Negro school boycott and a threatened civil service strike early last month headed off a crisis at that time. iii p,an o e ei er w.L e ong a g ,, a or the current rioting.

De Gaulle's assurance that he will raise the question of German reunification during his June visit to Moscow was probably the most satisfying result from the German viewpoint. The French leader asserted, however, that a solution to this problem is possible only by overcoming Soviet dis- trust of Germany. ON 25 N early and extensive tariff reductions. IMENNINNEW 25X1 The two leaders discussed the need for prac- tical steps to increase European political cooperation but apparently were unable to agree on how or when to proceed. The Germans avoided detailed discussions of NATO problems such as nuclear sharing, but they gained the impression that the French timetable of demands for changes in NATO has slowed down. Although the Germans assert that they made it clear to the French that agreement on EEC agricul- tural regulations depended on French cooperation in the Kennedy Round, there is nothing to indicate that Paris is less insistent than before on prior settlement of the agricultural issues. Moreover, he French doubted the 25X1 urgency of the tracte an tariff negotiations and were concerned over the effects on French industry of 11 Feb 66 i% 25X1 Approved For Release 2003/05/16 : CIA-RDP79T00975A008800030001-1 Approved or Release 2003/05/16 : CIA-RDP79T00975A00 800030001-1 25X1 Albania: Albania is showing interest in improving relations with selected Communist and Western coun- tries after a long period of self-imposed isolation. Tirana has responded positively to friendly over- tures from Rumania and Poland, and on 28 January Poland raised its representation in Tirana to the am- bassadorial level. The Albanian representative in Budapest for the first time in recent years requested and received an audience with a Hungarian Foreign Min- istry official this month. Albania has also moved to improve its relations with Turkey, France, and Italy. The Albanian foreign minister stated in a press interview in January that Turkish-Albanian relations could be good despite dif- fering political systems. Shortly thereafter the two countries raised their diplomatic representations to the ambassadorial level. Franco-Albanian cultural ex- changes have increased, and Tirana's cultural and eco- nomic relations with Italy have expanded. There is no reason to believe that Albania's ac- tions foreshadow a deterioration of its close relations with--or dependence upon--Communist China. Tirana has continued to parrot without letup the ideological line set in Peking. The Albanian moves may, however, be a reflec- tion of Tirana's belief that Peking should do more than it has to build up Albania's weak economy. There is evidence that Tirana is dissatisfied with the amount of aid Peking has offered in support of Albania's fourth five-year plan (1966-70). Tirana may believe it can profit economically through better relations with other countries without jeopardizing its good standing with Peking.
