  • Description

    PORTUGUESE FOREIGN MINISTER, DR. ALBERTO FRANCO NOGUEIRA, ARRIVED AT A SOUTH AFRICAN AIR FORCE STATION NEAR PRETORIA YESTERDAY (25 JULY) TO BEGIN A FIVE-DAY VISIT AS THE GUEST OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN GOVERNMENT. ACCOMPANIED BY HIS WIFE, DR. NOGUEIRA WILL HAVE TALKS WITH PRIME MINISTER, MR. JOHN VORSTER, FOREIGN MINISTER, DR. HILGARD MULLER, AND OTHER CABINET MINISTERS.

    NO DETAILS OF THE TALKS IN PRETORIA HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED BUT OBSERVERS BELIEVE THEY WILL AIM AT CONSOLIDATING THE ALREADY STRONG TIES BETWEEN PORTUGAL AND SOUTH AFRICA.

    THE TWO COUNTRIES ARE NEIGHBOURS IN SOUTHERN-AFRICA -- THROUGH PORTUGAL'S POSSESSION OF THE HUGE TERRITORIES OF ANGOLA AND MOZAMBIQUE -- AND HAVE FOR LONG BEEN JOINT TARGET OF ATTACK BY AFRICAN STATES.

    DR. NOGUEIRA, WHO FLEW TO SOUTH AFRICA FROM MOZAMBIQUE, WAS MET BY DR. MULLER, DEFENCE MINISTER, MR. PIETER BOTHA, THE COMMANDANT-GENERAL OF THE DEFENCE FORCE, GENERAL R.C. HIEMSTRA, ARMY CHIEF, GENERAL C.A. FRASER, AND AIR FORCE CHIEF, LIEUTENANT-GENERAL H.J. MARTIN.

    THE PRESENCE OF MR. BOTHA AND TOP-RANKING MILITARY MEN SUGGESTED THAT DR. NOGUEIRA WILL BE DISCUSSING SOME FORM OF MILITARY CO-OPERATION BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES.

    LATER DR. NOGUEIRA ATTENDED A LUNCHEON IN HIS HONOUR GIVEN AT THE PRETORIA COUNTRY CLUB BY THE SOUTH AFRICAN MINISTER OF POSTS AND TELEGRAPHS, DR. ALBERT HERTZOG.
