    FINLAND'S AMBASSADOR TO SENEGAL, MR OLLI JOHANNES ANERO, ON FRIDAY PRESENTED HIS CREDENTIALS TO PRESIDENT LEOPOLD SENGHOR IN A CEREMONY AT THE PRESIDENTIAL PALACE IN DAKAR.

    THE FINNISH GOVERNMENT HAD PREVIOUSLY LOOKED AFTER ITS INTERESTS IN SENEGAL FROM ITS EMBASSY IN NIGERIA, WHICH WAS ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR CAMEROUN AND THE IVORY COAST.

    PRESIDENT SENGHOR TOLD THE AMBASSADOR THAT SENEGAL, CURRENTLY IN A STATE OF EMERGENCY OVER ITS TROUBLED LABOUR SITUATION, WANTED TO REMAIN POLITICALLY INDEPENDENT AND NON-ALIGNED NATIONS.

    IN HIS ADDRESS, MR ANERO SAID THAT HIS OWN COUNTRY PERSUADE A POLICY OF NEUTRALITY. HE ALSO TOLD THE PRESIDENT THAT HE ADMIRED THE LARGE STRIBES MADE BY SENEGAL IN THE CULTURAL, ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL FIELDS, DUE MAINLY, HE SAID, TO THE SENEGALESE PEOPLES' SPIRIT OF DISCIPLINE.
