  • Description

    Taiwan's Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek, and his guests of honour President Bokassa of the Central African Republic, shared in a tumultuous reception at a mass anniversary rally in Taipei on Saturday (October 10).

    The celebration marked the 60th anniversary of the Chinese Nationalist movement. As the two leaders appeared together on a balcony to watch the anniversary parade, they were cheered by an estimated quarter of a million people.

    President Bokassa is making a 10-day visit to Taiwan as the guest of the 82-year-old Generalissimo. In a brief speech at the rally, the African leader congratulated the people of Taiwan on their anniversary
    On his arrival in Taiwan, a couple of days before the rally, President Bokassa said he intended to study the island's development programme during his visit.

    He also looked forward to continuing co-operation with Taiwan -- co-operation that would help the Central African Republic to combat under-development. President Bokassa is currently making a five-day tour of central and South Taiwan.
