  • Description

    a flight of twenty four Chinese jets flew the first ever Ruling King into a red-carpet welcome at Taiwan today, as His Imperial Majesty Mohammed Rosa Shah Pahlavi of Iran arrived on Formosa for a State Visit.

    President Chiang, wearing what our local correspondent calls 'his five star uniform' greeted the Iranian King at his plane-side adn accompanied him to h special dais for a 21 gan salute. After inspecting a guard of honour the Shah rode in an open car with General Chiang Kai-Shek through the plaudits of thousands of citizens and school children.

    A tight security not has been drawn over all places to be visited on the Royal itinerary, while all meals to be served will be cooked by 'seasoned' Moslem cooks. In the next few days the Shah will see military manoeuvred in the south of Taiwan, and visit oil refineries and industrial plants. Light relief is to be provided by trips to the scenic resorts of Sun-Moon Lake, and Mount Pakua.
