  • Description

    Mrs. Imelda Marcos, the wife of the Philippines president, yesterday became the first foreign guest in two months to meet Chinese Premier Chou En-lai Peking. The two met for about an hour at the hospital where the Chinese leader has been recovering from what's been described as heart trouble.

    The Philippines first Lady left Manila earlier the same day (Friday) for the visit that signifies the start of machinery for eventual diplomatic relations between China and the Philippines.

    A large crowd thronged Mrs. Marcos as she prepared to board the special Philippines Airlines flight to go directly to Peking.

    Speaking to newsmen at the airport, President Marcos said the next step following his wife's goodwill visit would be formal negotiations to establish diplomatic relations between the two countries.

    The president said development during his wife's visit might indicate a timetable for the establishment of diplomatic links.

    Mrs. Marcos, travelling as an official representative of the Philippines Government, carried a personal message from her husband and an invitation for a reciprocal visit to the Chinese leadership.
