    Background: VISNEWS filmed - July 4th - the arrival at Athens Airport of Chief of the French General Staff, Lieutenant-General Zeller for a six-day visit to Greece.

    The General, who was accompanied by his wife was greeted by Lieutenant-General Siradakis, Chief of the Greek General Staff.

    General Zeller's visit, following that by Britain Defence Minister Sandys and the German Chief of General Staff, General Heuzinger recently, is thought to be connected with the defence plana of the Western Allies and the suggestion by Mr. Khruschev for a Balkan Missile-free zone.

    During his visit, General Zeller will attend military manoeuvres and visit military installations in Attica and Northern Greece.
