    SYNOPSIS: At the National Guest House in Pyongyang, North Korea, Dr. Ryokichi Minobe, the visiting Governor of Tokyo, on October 31st, received the North korean Prime Minister, Kim II Sun, as guest. It was an unexpected honour, for premier Kim II sun would normally only feel obliged to meet visiting heads of State. But Dr. Minobe is very highly regarded as an economist and as a Governor of Tokyo with the support of the Japanese socialist and Communist parties.

    He asked the Prime Minister a number of questions about pollution, and was keen to know how the Dead Dong river near the National Guest House was kept so clean. All sewage from local housing is kept clear of the river. Dr. Minobe was due to have talks with Prime Minister Chou En Lai of the People's Republic of China after this visit to North Korea.
