Telephone 328-9231 Tunisia: a friend of the West TUNIS (CP) The geo- graphic of Tunisia makes it ideal for the country to serve as a bridge between Europe and the Arab world on the one hand and Arab and black Africa on the other. Tunisia is pro-West and par- ticipates actively in the Cul- tural and Technical Co-oper- ation Agency, founded in 1970 by about 20 French-speaking nations. Tunisian president, Habib Bourguiba, was one of the or- ganization's most fervent pro- moters'at its inception. Bourguiba has also had dreams of a union of the North African countries of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and neighboring Libya. Such a un- ion seemed on the way in part, at least, when the moderate Bourguiba and Col. Moammar Khadafy, the militant Libyan leader, signed an agreement in January to unite their two countries into a new state to be called the Arab Islamic Republic. But three days later the Tu- nisian government announced that the agreement was off. Bourguiba had rejected a similar union proposal in 1972. MANY DIFFERENCES Observers have noted more differences than similarities between the two leaders. Khadafy, 31, a fiery Islamic nationalist, has tried to expel foreign influence from his country. Bourguiba, one of the West's best friends in the Arab world, has been hospi- table to both Western in- fluences and aid. Tunisia is currently nego- tiating new terms of associ- ation with the European Eco- nomic Community and main- tains trade links with West Germany, Italy, and Libya from which it imports pri- mary products as well as a great deal of its manufac- tured goods. In the last several years, Tunisia has worked towards improving relations with Can- ada and the United States. Several agreements also link the nation with France, notably ones involving trade and immigration. More than French cul- tural and technical consult- ants are employed in Tunisia and more than Tuni- sian workers are employed in several French industries. BOTH HAPPY French and Tunisian lead- ers say they are satisfied with relations between their two countries. French official circles say they are pleased with the pol- icy the "socialist" republic of Tunisia has followed with re- gard to free enterprise. For the pessimists, the shadow in the picture is the question of who will succeed Bourguiba. It is feared his departure from office will begin a pe- riod of instability during which socialist experiments like those carried out in the republic's earlier years will be tried again. Bourguiba is unwell and 70 years old, and he faces oppo- sition from certain student and intellectual groups, but after 17 years in power, he still is the strong man of Tu- nisia and popular with .the people.
