  • Description

    GENERAL JOSEPH MOBUTU, THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE CONGOLESE ARMY TODAY (TUESDAY), HELD A SERIES OF TALKS WITH SENIOR WEST GERMAN DEFENCE MINISTRY OFFICIALS ON POSSIBLE AID FOR HIS COUNTRY'S ARMED FORCES.

    GENERAL MOBUTU ARRIVED EARLIER IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC FOR A FIVE DAY VISIT DESIGNED TO GIVE HIM AN INSIGHT INTO THE ORGANISATION OF WEST GERMANY'S ARMED SERVICES.

    WHILE THE QUESTION OF WEST GERMAN AID FOR THE CONGOLESE ARMY WAS NOT DEFINITELY SCHEDULED FOR THE TALKS, DEFENCE MINISTRY OFFICIALS DID NOT EXCLUDE THE POSSIBILITY THAT THE GENERAL WOULD USE THE TALKS AS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR EXPLORING POSSIBLE AREAS IN WHICH THE BONN GOVERNMENT COULD PROVIDE AID.

    AFTER TALKS TOMORROW-MORNING (WEDNESDAY), AT THE FOREIGN MINISTRY, GENERAL MOBUTU WILL LEAVE BY RAIL FOR MUNICH AND A BRIEF TOUR OF SOUTHERN GERMANY. HE'LL STAY THERE UNTIL MAY 24 VISITING SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES FOR PARATROOPS, AIR FORCE TECHNIQUES, OFFICERS AND PIONEERS.
