  • Description

    AN ALGERIAN DELEGATION HEADED BY M. SALAH BOUBNIDER, A MEMBER OF THE RULING COUNCIL OF THE REVOLUTION, DISCUSSED THE RESUMPTION OF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS BETWEEN ALGERIA AND CONGO-KINSHASA LAST WEEK, ACCORDING TO SOURCES IN KINSHASA.

    PRESIDENT JOSEPH MOBUTU RECEIVED THE DELEGATION AT HIS RESIDENCE AND LATER SHOWED THEM HIS PRIVATE ZOO.

    KINSHASA SOURCES ALSO REPORTED THAT THE POSSIBILITY OF A CONFERENCE OF AFRICAN REVOLUTIONARY PARTIES IN ALGIERS WAS DISCUSSED DURING THE MEETING WITH PRESIDENT MOBUTU, WHICH LASTED AN HOUR.

    NO DATE HAS YET BEEN SET FOR A RESUMPTION OF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS -- BROKEN OFF IN 1964 WHEN MOISE TSHOMBE WAS CONGOLESE PRIME MINISTER. RECENTLY TSHOMBE WAS SENTENCED TO DEATH IN HIS ABSENCE BY A MILITARY TRIBUNAL IN KINSHASA ON CHARGES OF HIGH TREASON. HE NOW LIVES IN EXILE IN MADRID.

    M. NEMICHE DJELLOUL, ALGERIAN AMBASSADOR TO GUINEA, SPEAKING FOR THE EIGHT-MAN DELEGATION, SAID BOTH SIDES WERE SEEKING TO CONSOLIDATE THEIR RELATIONS.
