  • Description

    President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn rounded off their two-day visit to India with a trip on Tuesday (3 January) to the village of Daulatpur-Nasirbad, near New Delhi where they talked to villagers and saw local craftsmen at work. It was a break from the talks and official business that have occupied most of his time and was suggested by the Indian Prime Minister Mr. Morarji Desai. Later the President and his wife arrived in Saudi Arabia to an official welcome. The Middle East peace moves were high on the agenda for discussions. Reporter Robert Pierpoint sent this report from India of the President's village walkabout.

    SYNOPSIS: President and Mrs Carter arrived in the royal capital of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh, in the afternoon to a warm reception. They were greeted by King Khalid Ibn Abdul Aziz and crown Prince Fahd at the airport. The President was staying in Arabia for only one day. On Wednesday he was due to fly to Aswan in upper Egypt. During his visit to Arabia, the President planned to discuss the Middle East situation with King Khalid. The President and first lady were accorded full honours at the airport, but later there was expected to be tough talking.

    After the military welcome, which included a 21-gun salute, and a band which played the American and Saudi Arabian national anthems, the President was welcomed by King Khalid with a speech which was translated afterwards thanking him for his Middle East peace efforts.
