  • Description

    MARKING THE RESUMPTION OF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS AFTER A BREAK OF TWO YEARS THE NEWLY APPOINTED YUGOSLAV AMBASSADOR TO CONGO-KINSHASA, MR. VILEMIR MIJOVIC, RECENTLY PRESENTED HIS CREDENTIALS TO PRESIDENT JOSEPH MOBUTU.

    MR. MIJOVIC'S APPOINTMENT MEANS THAT AT PRESENT YUGOSLAVIA IS THE ONLY EAST EUROPEAN COUNTRY TO HAVE DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH CONGO-KINSHASA AT AMBASSADOR'S LEVEL.

    BULGARIA, POLAND AND CZECHOSLOVAKIA ARE REPRESENTED IN THE CAPITAL BUT ON A LOWER DIPLOMATIC LEVEL.

    AFTER AN EXCHANGE OF COURTESIES WITH THE PRESIDENT THE NEW AMBASSADOR SIGNED THE VISITORS BOOK.

    ANOTHER DIPLOMAT TO VISIT KINSHASA RECENTLY FOR TALKS WITH CONGO KINSHASA'S FOREIGN MINISTER MR. JUSTIN BOMBOKO WAS THE SOVIET AMBASSADOR TO CONGO-BRAZZAVILLE MR. IVAN SPITSKY.

    THE MAIN TOPIC AT THE MEETING IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN THE QUESTION OF THE RESUMPTION OF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS BETWEEN THE SOVIET UNION AND CONGO-KINSHASA.

    IT IS THE SECOND TIME WITHIN THE PAST FEW WEEKS THAT MR. SPITSKY HAS BEEN IN KINSHASA. ON THE FIRST OCCASION HE WAS TAKEN ON A TOUR OF THE ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNITY'S BUILDING THERE.
