    Background: President Sese-Seko Mobutu of Zaire paid a courtesy call on West German Chancellor Willy Brandt at the Schaumburg Palace in Bonn on Thursday (30 January). Later in the day, the African leader visited the President of the Federal Republic, Herr Gustav Heinemann, at the Villa Hammerschmidt. President Mobutu has been in west Germany on a private visit since 14 January.

    During their meeting, President Mobutu and Chancellor Brandt reviewed relations between their two countries. A West German spokesman later said that the two men had discussed strengthening bilateral ties, particularly economic ones. He indicated that both leaders agreed that the Zairian-West German accord in safeguarding investments was a decisive factor for future investment in Zaire.

    Zaire's ambassador to Bonn, M. Mbeka Makosso, and Herr Frank Paul of the West German Foreign Ministry were also present at the hour-long meeting.
