Background: Paris -- The Japanese Prime Minister, Mr. Kishi, arrived in Paris on July 21st for a two-day visit. He landed at Le Bourget airfield having flown in a Pan American DC-6 airliner from Rome. He was greeted by a distinguished gathering which included M. Robert Leccurt who was deputizing for the prime minister of France, M. Debre, who in turn was delayed because of the state visit of the Emperor of Ethiopia. After reviewing a company of troops from the French Air Force, Mr. Kishi made a brief address in which he thanked the French Government for their invitation to him to visit Paris and said he looked forward to his talks with President De Gaulle and prominent French officials. By deepening a mutual understanding between France and Japan, he said, they would contribute to the causes of world peace and the well-being of humanity.
During his visit Mr. Kishi is expected to bring up with the French Government the same economic problems as he has raised with the other western governments he has recently seen. In particular it was thought that he would show great interest in President De Gaulle's oft-repeated appeal for aid to underdeveloped countries.
