CAHORS, France: Former French minister Maurice Faure, the last surviving signatory of the Treaty of Rome which paved the way for European integration, died on Thursday aged 92. A former Resistance fighter during World War II, Faure was deputy foreign minister when the pathbreaking 1957 treaty was signed. The Treaty gave birth to what was to become the six-nation European Economic Community and later evolve into today’s 28-member European Union.
