The King and Queen, accompanied by Spanish foreign Minister, Marcelino Oreja, were greeted at Caracas airport by Venezuelan President Carlos Andres Perez It's also the King's second visit to Venezuela -- last year, he stopped off for eight hours at the start of his first Latin-American tour.

    Following the airport ceremony the party drove into Caracas, where President Perez presented King Carlos with the Order of the Liberator, and Queen Sofia with the Order of Andres Bello. He also awarded them both the orders of Isabel the Catholic.
