    Background: THE CONGOLESE PRIME MINISTER, M. MOISE TSHOMBE ARRIVED IN BRUSSELS TODAY (THURSDAY) AS THE GUEST OF THE BELGIUM GOVERNMENT.

    M. TSHOMBE IS HAVING A DAY OF FULL TALKS ON OUTSTANDING ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL PROBLEMS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES. THEY WERE TO HAVE BEEN HELD EARLIER THIS MONTH. THEN, HIS GOVERNMENT PROPOSED TAKING OVER ALL BELGIAN MINING CONCESSION RIGHTS IN THE CONGO. BUT M. TSHOMBE CANCELLED THE VISIT BECAUSE HIS POLITICAL OPPONENT, MR. CYRILLE ADOULA, THE FORMER CONGOLESE PRIME MINISTER, WAS IN BRUSSELS.

    (MR. ADOULA WANTS NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE INSURGENTS IN THE CONGO. M. TSHOMBE REJECTS THIS IDEA AND SAYS THE KEY TO RESTORING ORDER LIES IN RESTORING THE COUNTRY'S ECONOMY.)
    AMONG THE MAIN SUBJECTS BEING DISCUSSED IS THE FUTURE OWNERSHIP OF UNION MINIERE, THE BIG COMPANY WHICH EXPLOITS COPPER AND OTHER MINERALS IN KATANGA.

    M. TSHOMBE FLIES TO LONDON TOMORROW FOR THE FUNERAL OF SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL, BUT HE IS EXPECTED TO RETURN TO BRUSSELS TO CONTINUE THE TALKS.
