  • Description

    Soviet President, Nikolai Podgorny, arrived at Cairo International airport on Wednesday (13th January) to begin an official visit to the United Arab Republic. He was greeted by President Sadat and other Egyptian leaders.

    A large enthusiastic crowd waited at the airport for several hours to greet the Soviet President. Among the Egyptian leaders was President Anwar Sadat who was first to greet the Russian visitor. Mr. Podgorny was also introduced to Mr. Sabry and Mr El Shafei who were among waiting dignitaries.

    A small crowd of Russians had also gathered at the airport, and gave their President a keen welcome. Flowers from them, were presented by two children.
