  • Description

    Prime Minister of the People's Republic of the Congo, Henri Lopes, and the President of the United Republic of Cameroun, Ahmadou Ahidjo, both ended official visits to Senegal on Sunday (30 June).

    M. Lopes arrived on Tuesday (25 June) and was met at Dakar-Yoff airport by his Senegalese counterpart, abdou Diouf and other Government Ministers. Prime Minister Lopes was to go on for talks with Senegal's President Leopold Senghor.

    The Congolese Premier said his visit was part of moves to increase ties between Central and West Africa. He also announced that Congolese President, Marien Ngouabi, would visit Senegal in the near future, possibly next February.

    M. Lopes -- on a tour of Senegal, Dahomey and the Ivory Coast -- praised what he called the great achievements of Senegal.

    On Wednesday (26 June), a full state welcome was organised for Cameroun President Ahmadou Shidjo.

    The visiting President -- on a five-day tour of Senegal -- was greeted by President Senghor, Prime Minister Diouf, the President of the National Assembly, Ammadou Cisse Dia, and other Government officials.

    After reviewing a guard of honour, the two Presidents held a press conference at the airport. President Ahidjo said he had met President Senghor at the Organisation of African Unity conference in Mogadishu in Somalia last month. But, he said, there had not been enough time for them then to talk at length.

    President Ahidjo said he and President Senghor would discuss relations between their countries and the relationship between he African continent to the rest of the world.
