  • Description

    PRESIDENT JOSEPH MOBUTU OF CONGO-KINSHASA FLEW INTO ABIDJAN, CAPITAL OF THE IVORY COAST YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY), FOR A THREE-DAY OFFICIAL VISIT. PRESIDENT MOBUTU CAME FROM NIAMEY, NIGER, WHERE HE HAD BEEN ATTENDING THE OCAM SUMMIT MEETING.

    PRESIDENT AND MRS. MOBUTU WERE WELCOMED AT ABIDJAN AIRPORT BY IVORY COAST PRESIDENT HOUPHOUET-BOIGNY. THE TWO LEADERS REVIEWED A GUARD OF HONOUR BEFORE MAKING THEIR WAY TO A WAITING CAR.

    AS THEY LEFT IN THE OPEN CAR LOCAL CHILDREN THREW FLOWER PETALS IN THEIR PATH.

    IT IS THOUGHT THAT THE MAIN OBJECT OF PRESIDENT MOBUTU'S VISIT IS TO STRENGTHEN RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTIES. DURING HIS STAY GENERAL MOBUTU WILL MAKE A TOUR OF THE INTERIOR OF THE COUNTRY AND VISIT THE TOWNS OF BOUAKE, DALOA AND THE VILLAGE OF YAMOUSSOUKRO, BIRTHPLACE OF PRESIDENT HOUPHOUET-BOIGNY.

    AT YAMOUSSOUKRO THE TOW HEADS OF STATE WILL HOLD OFFICIAL TALKS, MAINLY CONCERNED WITH BILATERAL RELATIONS.

    YESTERDAY BOTH LEADERS DROVE TO THE PRESIDENTIAL PALACE, AND LAST NIGHT A DINNER WAS HELD THERE IN THE VISITING PRESIDENT'S HONOUR. DURING THE DINNER PRESIDENT HOUPHOUET-BOIGNY SAID IT WAS VITAL THAT AFRICAN COUNTRIES SHOULD ACHIEVE HARMONY OF LANGUAGE AND CULTURE.
