It is planned for 1973, fol- lowing the exhaustive preliminary talks nfj'.v going on in Helsinki, be- f-veen 32 European nations, plus Can- ada and the I'rr.ed.

Led by Romania, several oi the smaller European na- tions have used the forum provided in Helsinki to ISSUE remarkably stri- dent demands for independence, for greater recognition of their sovereign- ty in political as well as in economic What this means is difficult to say. It is often the case that conferences are arranged to permit just this sort of declamation, to allow the lesser partners to blow off steam, so to speak, before the real powers down to business. Such statements by normally docile satellites are very interesting, nev- ertheless, and if they can be taken at ar.ything approaching face value and it is by no means certain that they can't add up to a clear welcome statement that smaller Eurooean nations will not be con- ten1: "forever to have their affair? settled '.r.

Trudeau's ex- pressed desire to Inform Heath about Canadian-American dis- cussions on Vietnam before the British prime minister receives Washington's version at the end of the month was a revealing comment ahc-ut certain diffi- culties between Canada and the L'.S. in this area. There were also signs that Trudeau was moving toward his first visit to France since he oe- carne im- portant previo-jsiy impys- fible step in the process of in- creasing Canada's contacts with the European Economic munity.
