    Background: A scheduled three-day series of talks between French Premier Debre and Mali Federation Premier Modibo Keita, began at the Matignon, Paris, Jan 18, with a view to eventual independence of the year-old Federation - composed of two former French colonies of French Sudan and Senegal - within the French Community. Both men were assisted by a panel of advisers.

    At present the Mali Federation is responsible for her own internal affairs. Matters of defence, economy and education are controlled by France. The Federation now seeks complete sovereignty within the French Community. A possible stumbling block is liable to be the French wish to retain the military base at Dakar.
