  • Description

    GENERAL JOSEPH MOBUTU, PRESIDENT OF THE CONGO DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC, WAS GREETED BY CHAD GOVERNMENT LEADERS, MEMBERS OF THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS AND SERVICE CHIEFS WHEN HE FLEW INTO FORT-LAMY ON MONDAY (NOVEMBER 10). THE WELCOMING DELEGATION WAS HEADED BY PRESIDENT FRANCOIS TOMBALBAYE.

    A LARGE REPRESENTATION OF THE CONGOLESE COMMUNITY IN CHAD WAS PRESENT TO ADD TO THE WELCOME FOR GENERAL MOBUTU, WHOSE ARRIVAL FOLLOWED HIS SEVEN-DAY OFFICIAL VISIT TO BELGIUM.

    HE SAID THAT HE BELIEVED HIS HIGH-LEVEL TALKS IN BELGIUM WOULD PRODUCE POSITIVE AND FRUITFUL RESULTS.

    QUESTIONED ABOUT THE DISCUSSIONS HE WOULD HAVE WITH PRESIDENT TOMBALBAYE, GENERAL MOBUTU SAID THAT THEY WOULD NATURALLY BE TALKING WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE CENTRAL AFRICAN ECONOMIC UNION (UEAC), OF WHICH THE GENERAL IS ACTING PRESIDENT.

    THE UNION, HE SAID, WAS PROCESSING WELL -- BECAUSE CHAD AND THE CONGO DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC WERE TWO COUNTRIES THAT HAD DECIDED TO PROMOTE AN ADVANCE IN CO-OPERATION.

    HE ADDED THAT IN A MATTER OF WEEKS OR MONTHS, THE TWO COUNTRIES WOULD NO LONGER BE ALONE IN THEIR ASSOCIATION -- BUT HE REFUSED TO SPECIFY WHICH AFRICAN STATES MIGHT BE ON THE POINT OF ENLARGING THE UNION.
