  • Description

    President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto of Pakistan flew into the Egyptian capital Cairo on Thursday for talks with president Sadat on the current situation in the Indian sub-continent.

    He was met at the airport by President Sadat, then the two leaders drove via the Nasser Mosque to the Kubbeh Palace for their talks.

    President Sadat has been visiting Moslem countries seeking support for his country's stand in the dispute with India over the future of East Pakistan, now proclaimed Bangladesh. He was due to go on to Damascus the Syrian capital after Cairo.

    At a press conference after his talks with president Sadat, President Bhutto expressed satisfaction with them as follows:
    SYNOPSIS: President Bhutto of Pakistan arrived in Cairo yesterday on a six-hour visit, after flying from Libya. He's been visiting Arab countries to enlist their support in delaying recognition for Bangladesh, the former Eastern wing of Pakistan. He has been accompanied on the tour by his wife.

    President Bhutto was welcomed at Cairo airport by President Anwar Sadat, and other Egyptian leaders present were the two Vice-Presidents, Dr. Mahmound Fawzy and Hussein El-Shafei, Foreign Minister Dr. Mourad Ghaleb, and senior Government officials.

    The two Moslem Presidents said little to the press at the airport, and were soon into a waiting car and away. The Presidents' first port of call was the Nasser Mosque, where only a couple of days before President Sadat had sat with his Ministers at prayer during the three-day Arab Bairam, the Moslem Feast of Sacrifice and the leading Festival of the Moslem year.

    Here President Bhutto laid a wreath before the tomb of Egypt's dead leader.

    Later the two Presidents moved on to the Kubbeh Palace, for talks on the current situation on the Indian sub-continent. President Bhutto hopes Moslem countries will help him persuade the large powers no to recognise Bangladesh until Pakistan is able to conduct satisfactory talks with its leaders. At a press conference after his talks with President Sadat, this was how he expressed his satisfaction with their discussions.
