  • Description

    Cambodian Head of State, Prince Nordom Sihanouk, received a colourful welcome in Dar es Salaam on Tuesday (2 December) as he arrived in Tanzania to begin a three day state visit.

    Large crowds and tribal dancers were on hand at the airport to greet the roving Prince, who is in the middle of a 30-nation tour.

    Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere embraced and kissed Prince Sihanouk. Tanzania consistently supported the prince and his Government in exile and the state visit is to officially acknowledge that support.

    The Cambodian Head of State inspected a guard of honour and watched displays by the tribal dancers....some of whom danced with live snakes entwined around their bodies withe the heads in their mouths.

    Later, Prince Sihanouk said the Cambodian people wished to "pay a heartfelt and fervent tribute and express their eternal gratitude" for Tanzania's support in the past.

    He added that Cambodia gave "all out support to liberation movements in Namibia (South-West Africa), South Africa and Rhodesia."
