    Background: Indonesian President Soekarno, arriving at Baghdad Airport for a three-day state visit to Iraq, Apr 2, was met by President Kassem, and later the same day placed a wreath on the tomb of Iraq's Unknown Soldier.

    An Iraq Air Force squadron escorted President Soekarno's plane from the Iraq frontier, and a 21-gun salvo greeted his arrival at the Airport; while an Army band played the Indonesian and Iraqi National Anthems, both Presidents stood on a saluting dais. President Soekarno was introduced to Iraqi ministers and officials, and was welcomed by Indonesians resident in Iraq.

    In the afternoon, as he drove to the Square of the Unknown Soldier to lay a wreath, large crowds applauded him.

    President Soekarno plans to visit twelve countries on his tour: India, Iraq, Egypt, Bulgaria, Hungary, Rumania, Yugoslavia, Guinea, Tunisia, Morocco, Portugal and Cuba.
