    Background: South African Prime Minister John Vorster, on a three-day private visit to Spain, has been playing golf and sightseeing amid strict security precautions.

    Spain, like most of the world, condemns South Africa's policy of apartheid and observers there say that Mr. Vorster's visit has been something of an embarrassment to Spanish authorities. Press treatment of his visit has been very brief.

    On Tuesday he played golf and later paid a courtesy call on Prince Juan Carlos of Bourbon who will become King of Spain when General Franco dies or retires.

    Mr. Vorster, accompanied by his wife and the South African Foreign Minister Dr. Hilgard Muller, spent more than an hour and a half at Prince Carlos' country palace at Zarzuela.

    The South African leader and his party left by train for Paris on Wednesday (10 June) to continue his European tour-the first he has ever made.
