Embattled President Mobutu Sese Seku and his chief opponent hit a new impasse Friday in their talks on forming a new government, as France and Belgium announced the withdrawal of some of their soldiers from Zaire. Officials from the two countries said 290 soldiers were being flown out of Zaire and said the 1,100 Western troops remaining would not be used to prop up Mobutu. Most of the soldiers are in Kinshasa, the capital.
