Abstract: Interactions related to A-B phases exist between fluxons with 0 , integer when the fluxons are actually immersed in the region with non vanishing mobile charge density. In particular for the interesting case of = 1/2 we find that this force is attractive. We briefly comment on the prospects of observing such forces.
