Italy demands the right of absolute naval parity with France, although' professing willingness to-' disarm, even completely, if other nations will follow her suit. France, on the other hand, has set j a total projected naval tonnage for herself far in excess of what the other powers think fit. and .has refused with finality to grant Italy parity. The Paris government was understood to be negotiating privately with Rome officials for a better understanding of what the Mussolini government mean's - by parity with France.
