  • Description

    SOVIET PRESIDENT NIKOLAI PODGORNY ARRIVED IN ALGIERS YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) AT THE START OF A SIX-DAY STATE VISIT TO ALGERIA. HE WAS GREETED AT DAR EL BEIDA AIRPORT BY THE ALGERIAN PRESIDENT, M. HOURI BOUMEDIENNE, AND OTHER ALGERIAN LEADERS.

    AFTER THE OFFICIAL WELCOMING CEREMONIES AT THE AIRPORT, THE TWO PRESIDENTS DROVE INTO ALGIERS. THOUSANDS OF ALGERIANS LINED THE CITY STREETS TO WELCOME THE PRESIDENT OF THE SOVIET UNION. OFFICIAL TALKS BETWEEN THE TWO PRESIDENTS WILL BEGIN TODAY (THURSDAY) AND CONTINUE ON MONDAY.

    MR PODGORNY'S VISIT FOLLOWS A STEADY DEVELOPMENT OF ALGERIAN-SOVIET CO-OPERATION DURING RECENT YEARS. TWO DAYS AGO, PRESIDENT BOUMEDIENNE PRESIDED AT A MINISTERIAL MEETING IN ALGERIA TO STUDY WAYS OF FURTHER STRENGTHENING RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO NATIONS.

    THE SOVIET UNION IS SHOWING AN INCREASED INTEREST IN ALGERIA, WITH SOME 2,500 CIVILIAN AND MILITARY EXPERTS IN THE COUNTRY, LONG TERM TRADE COMMITMENTS AND A GROWING EXCHANGE OF MINISTERIAL VISITS.

    PRESIDENT PODGORNY WILL LEAVE ALGERIA ON APRIL THE 1ST FOR A 5-DAY VISIT TO MOROCCO.
