  • Description

    President Salvador Allends of Chile received a tumultuous reception from about 100,000 people when he arrived in Mexico City on Thursday (30 November).

    It was the first main stop on the President's first major overseas trip since he took office two years ago. The Marxist leader' tour will include visits to the United Nations in New York, the Soviet Union and Cuba.

    President Luis Echeverria Alvarez of Mexico visited Chile last year, and is a firm supporter of the socialist system applied there. He is also a staunch supporter of President Allende's efforts to end foreign influence in Chile. His own government, which celebrated its second anniversary on Friday (1 December) is trying to reduce Mexico's dependence on the United States.
