  • Description

    The President of Finland, Mr Kekkonen, and his wife, arrive in Copenhagen for a three-day state visit. They are received at the airport by King Frederick, a great friend of Kekkonen, Queen Ingrid and the Crown Princess Margrethe.

    According to reports, no special political significance attaches to the visit but as it is the first official Finnish presidential visit to Denmark since 1926 it emphasises the northern orientation which was buttressed a few years ago through Finnish participation in the Nordic Council.

    During his stay Kekkonen will tour farms, homes for children factories and hospitals; in fact he will follow very much the same itinerary as Queen Elizabeth when she was in Copenhagen.
