  • Description

    The President of the Sudan Jaafar El Nimeiry recently became the first Chief of State from his country to visit the Ivory Coast.

    President Nimeiry spent four days in the Ivory Coast, and took the opportunity to have talks with the President, M. Felix Houphouet-Boigny. The visit began on Saturday (18 August).

    In Abidjan, the Ivory Coast capital, President Nimeiry was given a special welcome. Saturday was declared a holiday in honour of the visit, and schoolchildren and students were asked to give the President a warm and enthusiastic welcome. The Sudanese leader was made an honorary citizen of Abidjan, and was presented with the keys of the city by the mayor. A banquet and a sightseeing tour were also on the itinerary.

    Later, the Sudanese leader and President Houphouet-Boigny had a three-hour private meeting. A work session followed with representatives of both countries. The visit was seen as another effort in improving Sudan's relations with other African countries.
