  • Description


    TRANSCRIPT: Mr. Dilomba: "One of the many aims of my visit to Greece is to seek from the Greek Government - as Katanga Premier Tshombe had already done in a personal letter to Greek Premier Karamanlis - technical and moral help for my country, Katanga. Police officers and specialized technicians, as well as capitalists who wish to invest funds in my country, are warmly welcome and have nothing to fear."



    TRANSCRIPT: Mr. Dilomba: "Really, indirect attempt was made by Lumumba's friends, but failed miserably. For 44 seats in Katanga's Parliament belongs to the Conakat Party of Premier Tshombe, against 16 of the "Kartel" party of Lumumba's friend Sedoui."
