    AMERICAN UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE NICHOLAS D. KATZENBACH IS IN GHANA ON THE FOURTH STAGE OF A 12-NATION AFRICAN TOUR. ON SATURDAY MR. KATZENBACH ARRIVED AT ABIDJAN, THE IVORY COAST CAPITAL.

    MR. KATZENBACH WAS MET ON HIS ARRIVAL AT ABIDJAN AIRPORT BY IVORY COAST FOREIGN MINISTER ARSENE USHER ASSOUAN. A GROUP OF IVORY COAST SINGERS AND DANCERS ALSO TURNED OUT TO WELCOME THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE.

    LATER IN THE DAY MR. KATZENBACH HELD TALKS WITH THE COUNTRY'S PRESIDENT, FELIX HOUPHOUET-BOIGNY.

THE OTHERS WILL HAVE TO RELY ON MULTILATERAL SOURCES, THROUGH SUCH ORGANISATIONS AS THE EXPORT-IMPORT BANK, THE UNITED NATIONS, THE UNITED STATES PEACE CORPS AND FOOD FOR PEACE PROGRAMME.

    MR. KATZENBACH HAS ALREADY DISCUSSED THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE CHANGES WITH GOVERNMENT LEADERS IN SENEGAL AND GUINEA.

    APART FROM THE IVORY COAST AND GHANA, HE WILL ALSO VISIT CONGO-KINSHASA, ZAMBIA, KENYA, SOMALIA, TANZANIA, UGANDA AND ETHIOPIA.

    MR. KATZENBACH LEFT ABIDJAN FOR GHANA ON SUNDAY MORNING.
