  • Description

    Zaire President, General Mobutu Sese Seko welcomed the Ambassadors from Guinea and The People's Republic of the Congo on Saturday (11 Nov). Mr. Appolinaire Basinga from the Congo, and Mr. Titians Sano of Guinea, were invited to the President's residence at Mont Galiema to present their credentials. The Zaire Secretary of State and Foreign Affairs Nguza Karl I Bound was also present at the ceremony.

    Zaire expelled the Congolese Charge d'Affaires and recalled its mission in Brazzaville last year, after allegations that the diplomat had been involved in a subversive plot against President Mobutu Sese Seko. At the time relations were not ruptured as, under an earlier agreement, the Ambassadors were also the respective Foreign Ministers.
