  • Description

    RUMANIAN PRESIDENT NICOLAI CEAUSESCU ARRIVED IN TEHERAN YESTERDAY. ACCOMPANIED BY HIS WIFE, HE IS ON A FIVE-DAY STATE VISIT TO IRAN AT THE INVITATION OF THE SHAH AND EMPRESS FARAH.

    THE SHAH AND HIS WIFE WERE WAITING TO GREET MR. CEAUSESCU AT TEHERAN'S FLAG-DECKED MEHRABAD AIRPORT. ALSO IN THE WELCOMING PARTY WERE IRAN'S PRIME MINISTER AMIR ABBAS NOVEIDA, AND A NUMBER OF CABINET MINISTERS, SERVICE, AND SECURITY CHIEFS.

    THE TWO LEADERS STOOD TO ATTENTION ON A DAIS WHILE THE NATIONAL ANTHEMS OF THEIR COUNTRIES WERE PLAYED. A RED CARPET HAD BEEN LAID IN HONOUR OF THE RUMANIAN PRESIDENT'S VISIT, AND A TWENTY-ONE GUN SALUTE WAS FIRED. BEFORE LEAVING THE AIRPORT, MR. CEAUSESCU WAS INTRODUCED TO MEMBERS OF THE RUMANIAN EMBASSY IN IRAN.

    THEN, HE AND THE SHAH DROVE WITH THEIR WIVES TO THE MAIN FERDOWCI SQUARE, WHERE THE MAYOR OF TEHERAN PRESENTED THE PRESIDENT WITH A GOLDEN KEY-SYMBOLISING FREEDOM OF THE CITY. FROM THE SQUARE, THE PARTY, EXCHANGING THEIR OPEN CAR FOR MORE PICTURESQUE HORSE-DRAWN CARRIAGES, DROVE TO THE GULISTAN PALACE, ESCORTED BY IMPERIAL LANCERS THROUGH CLAPPING AND CHEERING CROWDS.

    THE LEADERS WILL HOLD FAR-REACHING TALKS DURING THE VISIT. THE EXPANSION OF TRADE, TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION, AND CULTURAL RELATIONS ARE AMONG THE SUBJECTS LIKELY TO BE DISCUSSED.
