  • Description

    Pai Hsiang-kuo, Foreign Trade Minister of the People's Republic of China, arrived in France today (29 September) for talks with President Pompidou and other French leaders. He is the first member of the Peking Government to pay an official visit to a Western capital since Chairman Mao Tse-tung founded the People's Republic 22 years ago.

    Mr. Pai arrived at Orly airport at the head of a nine-man delegation including senior officials from the Foreign Affairs Ministry as well as from his own Ministry. The visit is scheduled to last ten days.

    Mr. Pai's visit is seen in France as putting the seal on the policy of rapprochement initiated a decade ago by the late President de Gaulle. More directly, it reciprocates a visit made to Peking last year by French State Planning Minister Andre Bettencourt.

    Mr. Pai spoke to newsmen at a televised press conference in the airport lounge. The following is a translation of the French interpretation of his words:
