French President Francois Mitterrand Thursday held a second round of talks with Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi that focused on peace prospects in Cambodia and said "considerable progress" had been made in improving Indo-French relations.

Speaking to reporters before leaving for Calcutta on the second day of his four-day visit, Mitterrand said he would meet again with Gandhi before leaving India Saturday.At a ceremony at the presidential palace after the meeting, Mitterrand said he and the Indian leader reviewed regional and international developments, and "Cambodia in particular was discussed." He declined, however, to elaborate.
