    Background: PRESIDENT ZINSOU OF DAHOMEY, WHO IS VISITING WEST GERMANY, WAS DUE TO BE RECEIVED BY CHANCELLOR KIESINGER IN BONN TODAY.

    YESTERDAY, AT A DINNER GIVEN IN DR. ZINSOU'S HONOUR, WEST GERMAN PRESIDENT HEINRICH LUEBKE ASSURED DAHOMEY OF CONTINUED COOPERATION, PARTICULARLY IN THE ECONOMIC FIELD.

    PRESIDENT LUEBKE SAID: "GERMANY AND DAHOMEY ARE ALREADY COOPERATING IN MANY FIELDS ON A BILATERAL BASIS AND WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF YOUR COUNTRY'S ASSOCIATION WITH THE EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET. WE HAVE THE INTENTION, AND WE ARE WILLING, TO CONTINUE THESE EFFORTS, THUS HELPING TO SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS."
    PRESIDENT ZINSOU, WHO IS HEADING A GOVERNMENT DELEGATION, IS ACCOMPANIED BY HIS WIFE. HE ARRIVED FOR A WEEK'S VISIT TO WEST GERMANY LAST MONDAY (24 FEBRUARY), AND HAS SINCE VISITED FRANKFURT, MUNICH AND BERLIN.

HE ADDED THAT WEST GERMANY WOULD GIVE EVERY POSSIBLE HELP TO LIKE-MINDED AFRICAN COUNTRIES, AND EXPRESSED HIS SUPPORT FOR THE AFRICAN REGIONAL ORGANIZATIONS WHICH, HE SAID, "FURTHER THE PEACEFUL CO-EXISTENCE OF PEOPLES AND THEIR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT."
