  • Description

    On Day Two (Nov 11) of his ten-day State visit to Persia, President Ayub Khan of Pakistan and the Shah took the salute at a military parade, and afterwards enjoyed a physical fitness display. Both staged in honour of the Pakistani President's visit.

    Rumbling tanks followed in the wake of guardsmanlike infantry and lumbering camel corps, as Persia's armed forces marched past the Royal dais.

    Teheran stadium was crowded with thousands of people in festive mood, as President Ayub Khan watched an exuberant display of physical fitness and tribal dancing. All of Persia's colourful contrasts were arrayed for the President's enjoyment. Youth from Teheran's modern schools gave a precise display of calisthenics, followed by traditionally dressed tribesmen performing wild dances.

    The President and the Shah will later this week be joined by Turkish Premier Menderes, and Foreign Minister Zorlu, for talks covering a wide range of subjects of common interest, with the stated object of warding off trouble in the Middle East.

    Persia, Pakistan and Turkey are three of the four-member CENTO. The other member is Great Britain.
