Background: France and the Soviet Union have agreed on a broad outline for French farm imports, including grain, over the next three years, but have refused to divulge the quantities involved. The agreement was framed during a five day to visit to the Kremlin by French Agriculture Minister Edith Cresson. Mme Cresson arrived in Moscow on October 13 and was met by her Soviet counterpart, Valentin Myesyatz. Later she said she believed the new agreement would lead to a substantial quantity of French agricultural imports to the Soviet Union. While in the Soviet capital, Mme Cresson opened a major exhibition of French produce at the Moscow Centre of International Trade. With French and Soviet delegates, Mme Cresson viewed the exhibits which included livestock, milking and bottling machines. More than 300 French companies participated in the exhibition.
