New Briefs: GATT Application

HANOI, Vietnam (AP) - Vietnam will apply for observer status in the general agreement

on tariffs and trade as a first step to becoming a full participant in the world

trade body, officials said June 21.

Vietnamese Trade Minister Le Van Triet and GATT general director Arthur Dunkel announced

the plan at the end of Dunkel's four-day visit.

When asked if a current GATT member-the United States, for example-could try to impede

Vietnam's application to become an observer, Dunkel replied that such speculation

was "premature."
