    THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CHAD, FRANCOIS TOMBALBAYE, ARRIVED IN BANGUI ON SATURDAY (FEBRUARY 28) TO HOLD TALKS WITH PRESIDENT JEAN-BEDEL BOKASSA OF THE CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC-WHO WAS AT THE AIRPORT TO MEET HIM.

    PRESIDENT TOMBALBAYE WAS ONLY IN BANGUI FOR A SHORT STOPOVER ON HIS WAY HOME TO CHAD FROM CONGO-KINSHASA-WHERE HE HAD SPENT FOUR DAYS IN TALKS WITH PRESIDENT JOSEPH MOBUTU IN AN EFFORT TO TRY TO FIND A SOLUTION TO THE STRAIN BETWEEN THE TWO CONGOS.

    ALTHOUGH THE HEADS OF STATE OF CHAD AND THE CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC SPOKE FOR SEVERAL HOURS, NO OFFICIAL STATEMENT WAS ISSUED BEFORE PRESIDENT TOMBALBAYE LEFT FOR HOME IN THE EVENING-BUT OFFICIAL SOURCES INDICATE THAT A GREAT PART OF THEIR DISCUSSIONS WAS CENTRED ON THE POSSIBILITIES OF ORGANISING A FUTURE SUMMIT OF PRESIDENTS FROM ALL THE CENTRAL AFRICAN STATES WHICH MIGHT LEAD TO A TOTAL RECONCILIATION OF ALL THE PEOPLE OF CENTRAL AFRICA.
