HAVE Toporr L BKEILE Mart Walker China Talks Slow LI'L ABNER-Ry Al Capp OTTAWA (CP) Ths longest lag to date in the Canada-main- land China diplomatic talks at Stockholm enters its fifth month today. The negotiations, aimed at an exchange of diplomatic recogni- tion by Ottawa and the Peking Communist regime, have been in recess since March 24 when the last formal meeting was held. Despite the extended hiatus, apparently due 'to the Chinese delegation's lack of instructions from Peking, Canadian officials still profess optimism about the eventual outcome of the talks. An informed source said yesterday it is hoped that an- other meeting will be held in the near future. Under a rota- tion system worked out in the early stages of the talks; which have been in progress off and on for 17 months, the next meet- ing if there is one would be at the call of the Chinese. BRIDGING THE GAP At the last session, Canada's diplomatic delegation put for- ward the latest in a series of proposals designed to bridge the gap between the two sides on the key question of Formosa. Since the negotiations began, Canada has-been resisting the Chinese demand that Ottawa recognize then- territorial claim to the Nationalist-held offshore island. A large part of the history of the talks has been written in thus far unsuc- by Canada to devise a formula for getting around this fundamental disa- greement. Essentially, the problem in- volves framing a communique on mutual recognition that would take account of the Pe- king demand while preserving Canada's position.
