  • Description

    President Luis Echeverria of Mexico arrived in Chile Monday (17 April) at the start of a five-day official visit during which he will address the third UNCTAD (United Nations Conference on Trade and Development) conference in Santiago.

    The trip is regarded as part of Mexico's policy of strengthening ties with the countries of Latin America, and reducing dependence on the United States. Last October President Echeverria addressed the United National General assembly, and his decision to speak before the UNCTAD conference is seen as another example of his more active approach to foreign affairs. On arrival in Chile President Echeverria was warmly greeted by President Allende and senior Government officials and enthusiastic crowds.

    SYNOPSIS: Santiago, Chile, and a warm welcome for President Luis Echeverria of Mexico. It was the start of an official visit by the Mexican head of State, and he was greeted personally by President Salvador Allende.

    Doctor Eluent presented officials, after which the two Presidents stood to attention for the palying of the two national anthems, and then inspected the Guard of Honour.

    Santiago is host city the third United Nations Conference on trade and Development, and President Allende presided last week over the opening. The Conference assembles 3-thousand delegates form a hundred-and-forty-two countries around the world for a six-week discussion about sharing world trade. President Echeverria will himself address the conference during this five day visit.
