  • Description

    The renewed fighting in the Middle-East and the growth of bi-lateral relations were the main topics at talks between President Nixon and President Houphouet-Boigny of the Ivory Coast in Washington on Tuesday (9 October).

    The Ivory Coast President also conferred with the new Secretary of State, Dr. Henry Kissinger, after his White House meeting with President Nixon.

    At a state dinner after the talks, President Nixon praised President Houphouet-Boigny as a leader with the global realisation that the current fighting in the Middle East affected the Ivory Coast as much as events closer to West Africa.

    Mr. Nixon said M. Houphouet-Boigny had a deep grasp of the problems of the world and was a statesman "who knew what it was like to five a new country the drive and spirit it needed to become a major force in that part of the world."
    Answering Mr. Nixon's toast, the Ivory Coast President called the American President "one of the most significant figures of our time."
    He said he hoped Mr. Nixon's initiatives to win cooperation from the Soviet Union towards ending the Middle east was would succeed. He also praised President Nixon's efforts to open a new dialogue with The People's Republic of China.

    The Ivory Coast President's three-day visit to Washington also included meetings with Congressional leaders, and the American vice President, Spiro Agnew, just prior to his resignation.
