    THE SHAH OF IRAN ARRIVED IN TUNIS ON TUESDAY (15 APRIL) TO BEGIN A SIX-DAY OFFICIAL VISIT.

    THE SHAH FLEW IN TO TUNIS CARTHAGE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT WITH HIS WIFE, EMPRESS FARAH DIBA. THEY WERE WELCOMED AT THE AIRPORT BY TUNISIA'S PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA AND HIS WIFE. THE IRANIAN AMBASSADOR TO TUNIS WAS ALSO THERE TO GREET HIS KING.

    THE TWO LEADERS INSPECTED THE GUARD OF HONOUR FROM MEMBERS OF THE TUNISIAN FORCES, THEN PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA PRESENTED TUNISIAN NOTABLES AND MEMBERS OF THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS TO HIS GUESTS.

    AS THE SHAH AND HIS PARTY LEFT THE AIRPORT, THEIR MOTORCADE WAS SHOWERED WITH BOUQUETS OF FLOWERS BY THE CROWD.

    LATER, AT THE PRESIDENTIAL PALACE, THE ROYAL GUESTS ATTENDED A BANQUET IN THEIR HONOUR. PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA PRESENTED THE SHAH AND HIS WIFE WITH TUNISIAN DECORATIONS, AND THE COUPLE ALSO RECEIVED MANY GIFTS FROM TUNISIA.

    BUT NEXT DAY, IT WAS DOWN TO WORK FOR THE SHAH. HE AND M. BOURGUIBA BEGAN A SERIES OF DISCUSSIONS ON FUTURE CO-OPERATION BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES IN ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL FIELDS. FEELING IN BOTH COUNTRIES IS TOWARDS A DEEPENING OF THE FRIENDLY RELATIONS WHICH HAVE LONG EXISTED BETWEEN THEM. THE SHAH'S VISIT IS ITSELF IN RETURN FOR ONE WHICH PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA AND HIS WIFE MADE TO IRAN IN 1965.
