    President Abdul Salam Mohammed Arif of Iraq arrived in New Delhi, India yesterday (Thursday), for a seven day state visit.

    He arrived in a Pakistan Airforce "Viscount" and was met the President Radhakrishnan. Also present in the welcoming party were several Government ministers and members of the diplomatic corps. Later President Arif went to Rajghat to lay a wreath at the tomb of Mahatma Gandhi.
