The cooperation of the French government with the Zionist Organization in creating colonization facilities for Jewish settlers in territory adjacent to Palestine and in bringing about the realization of the aims of the Zionist movement were promised by Aristide Briand, French Foreign Minister, in an audience he granted Dr. Weizmann on Friday, prior to his departure for the United States.

Dr. Weizmann was accompanied by Deputy Leon Blum, leader of the French Socialist party, when he called on the Foreign Minister. It is understood that Dr. Weizmann submitted to M. Briand data on the present problems and the policy of the Zionist movement.
