    Background: The Six - Nation Commission set up to settle the differences between Congo Kinshasa and Congo Brazzaville met in Kinshasa last week. It was set up last month after a meeting in the middle of the Congo River between President Mobutu of Congo Kinshasa and President Bgouabi of Congo Brazzavilla.

    The main task facing the Commission has been the settlement of differences between the two Congos, with a view to restoring diplomatic relations severed in October 1968 after the executation in Kishasa of Pierre Mulele.

    Traffic across the mile-wide Congo River separating the two capitals was partially restored after the Commission's first meeting, and as a result of last week's session ferries will be permitted to transport citizens and officials of both cities to and fro across the river one day each week.

    An official Party made up of Commission delegates has tried out the new service. The Commission is expected to meet again within a few weeks for further discussions.
