  • Description

    Preceded by a blaze of publicity, Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro arrived in Algiers yesterday (Monday) to start his first visit to an Arab country. He's expected to stay 10 days and he received one of the warmest welcomes ever accorded a visiting head of state.

    President Houari Boumadienne was there to greet Dr. Castro at the airport. And later the two leaders walked through showers of flower petals thrown by cheering crowds. They last met when Houari Boumedienne visited Havana as Algerian Defence Minister in 1964.

    Dr. Castro is currently on his longest foreign tour since coming to power 13 years ago. It is taking him to African and East European countries, and finally to Moscow.
