  • Description

    General Jean Bedel Bokassa, President of the Central African Republic, is in Rumania for a State Visit as guest of Rumanian President Nicolae Ceausescu.

    Mr Ceausescu was at Bucharest's Otopeni Airport on Saturday (July 11) to welcome General Bokassa. He was accompanied by the Rumanian Prime Minister, Ion Gheorghe Maurer.

    President Bokassa was accompanied by Ange Patasse, Minister of State In Charge of Development, Nestor Kombot- Naguemon, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and several other Ministers.

    President Bokassa went to Rumania from Russian where he had been on a 10-day official visit at the invitation of the Soviet Government and the Supreme Soviet.

    When General Bokassa and Mr Ceausescu drove from the Airport in an open car there were thousands of people lining the route into the city.

    The Rumanian President said President Bokassa's visit should do much to strengthen relations between their two countries. He added that Rumania supported the efforts of young African States to strengthen their national independence and pursue their own economic and social development.

    The expansion of trade exchanges between Rumania and the Central African Republic is expected as one result of President Bokassa's visit.
