Leaders of the United States, Britain and France took advantage of the Paris summit Monday to discuss ways of rescuing world trade talks from collapse.
But there was no sign that the three achieved a breakthrough in the talks, held under the auspices of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, which have hit a snag over farm trade reform."We are deeply concerned about the GATT round," British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said after an hour-long breakfast meeting with President Bush.
"We're not through the difficulties yet," she said.
The world leaders were in Paris for the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, which is formalizing the end to the Cold War.
