  • Description

    President Mobuto sese Seko of Zaire has visited Gabon for talks at the end of a series of visits to European capitals and other African countries.

    SYNOPSIS: President Mobutu flew into Libreville, the Gabonese capital, where President Omar Bongo and his ministers were waiting to meet him.

    There was a warm welcome for the visiting head of state. President Bongo is also head of the Organisation of African Unity. After the airport formalities the two leaders had a day-long round of talks. According to Reuters the discussions centred on security matters of African states within the OAU.

    France, one of the countries President Mobuto visited, has recently concluded defence treaties with three West African countries, Senegal, the Ivory Coast and Gabon.

    In addition France has also agreed to help seven other West African states which are trying to organise a common defence system. During the talks the two leaders also agreed to reinforce links that have existed between coastal Gabon and Zaire for a number of years. At the end of the brief 24-hour visit President Mobutu flew back to Kinshasa, the Zairean capital.
