    Background: The President of the Central African Republic, General Jean Bedel Bokassa spent two days cruising the Aegean from Zea Bay harbour after concluding his two-day State visit to Greece on the 10th of April.

    During his official visit President Bokassa had talks on a wide range of subjects, including the Middle East and economic co-operation, with Greek leaders.

    President Bokassa was in Athens last August for economic talks with the Greek regime.

    SYNOPSIS: At Cairo International Airport there was a ceremonial welcome on Sunday for President Jaafar Nimeiry of Sudan when he arrived to attend a summit meeting of the four Tripoli Pact countries. The Egyptian President Mr. Anwar Sadat, was at the airport to meet him.

    President Nimeiry, who brought a high-powered delegation with him from Khartoum, had come to Cairo to meet the heads of the other Tripoli Pact countries, President Gaddafi of Libya and President Assad of Syria. The meeting is the second since Syria joined the group. President Sadat was expected to give his colleagues a comprehensive review of political, military and economic developments in the Arab-Israeli conflict. The four leaders were also expected to discuss the latest events in Jordan, scene of renewed clashes between Government forces and Palestinian guerrilla groups.

    The evening before the meeting began, President Sadat had talks with Mr Bahi Ladgham, the Tunisian politician charged with mediating between King Hussein of Jordan and the guerrilla leaders. The two men met at the President's home in Giza.

    After Mr Ladoham had left, Presidents Sadat and Nimeiry had informal talks in preparation for the summit meeting.
