    Background: ALGERIA YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) CELEBRATED THE NINTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE OUTBREAK OF ITS WAR OF INDEPENDENCE. IN ALGIERS, PRESIDENT BEN BELLA SPOKE TO A CROWD OF 500,000 GATHERED IN THE CITY'S NEW PARADE SQUARE.

    HE PAID TRIBUTE TO MEDIATORS IN THE FRONTIER CONFLICT WITH MOROCCO BUT MADE NO MENTION OF THE CEASEFIRE AGREEMENT. IN AN APPARENT REFERENCE TO THE BORDER DISPUTE, HE SAID: "WAR MUST NOT EXIST BETWEEN COUNTRIES WHO HAVE BUILT THEIR INDEPENDENCE IN BLOODSHED ... AND THIS MUST BE MORE SO BETWEEN BROTHER NATIONS, BETWEEN AFRICAN NATIONS."
    PRESIDENT BEN BELLA ADDED THAT THE EVIAN AGREEMENTS ON COOPERATION BETWEEN ALGERIA AND FRANCE WOULD HAVE TO BE"ADJUSTED." THE EVIAN AGREEMENTS WERE SIGNED LAST YEAR ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT 500,000 EUROPEANS WOULD REMAIN IN ALGIERS FOR COOPERATION ON FINANCIAL AID, OIL PRODUCTION, MILITARY BASES AND THE ALGERIAN CONSTITUTION.

    MR. BEN BELLA SAID FRANCE REALISED THE AGREEMENTS WERE NO LONGER VALID BECAUSE THERE WERE NOW ONLY 100,00 FRENCH IN ALGERIA.

    A STRONG MILITARY DELEGATION FROM THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC WAS AMONG SPECTATORS AS PRESIDENT BEN BELLA TOOK THE SALUTE DURING THE COMMEMORATIVE PARADE.
