  • Description

    President Sangoule Lamizana of Upper Volta met President Georges Pompidou of France on Monday (June 25) during his visit there this week, and afterwards told newsmen the talks were 'friendly'. Speaking on the steps of the Elysee Place -- President Pompidou's official residence and working quarters -- President Lamizana said the drought situation in Upper Volta, which latest news reports call 'serious', formed part of the discussions.

    The drought, which is being fought by relief agencies from several nations, has also affected Upper Volta's neighbours. Referring to the international aid -- in the form of transport aircraft to drop cattle feed to outlying areas; cash; and water conservation programmes -- President Lamizana acknowledged the help and thanked 'our friends in foreign countries, Asian countries, Algeria, and international organisations'.
