  • Description

    PRESIDENT TUBMAN OF LIBERIA ARRIVED ABOARD THE YACHT, "PRESIDENT CAZALE", AT THE PORT OF TUNIS YESTERDAY (MONDAY). WAITING TO WELCOME HIM WAS PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA, LEADING TUNISIAN MINISTERS AND MEMBERS OF THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS. CLOSE AT HAND WAS M. MONGI SLIM, THE TUNISIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, WHO MADE THE PRELIMINARY ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE LIBERIAN PRESIDENT'S VISIT EARLIER IN THE YEAR AT THE ADDIS ABABA GATHERING OF AFRICAN STATESMEN.

    THE TWO PRESIDENTS INSPECTED A GUARD OF HONOUR DRAWN FROM A DETACHMENT OF MARINES, BEFORE TRAVELLING IN A MOTORCADE THROUGH THE STREETS OF TUNIS TO THE PALACE. THERE, THEY EXCHANGED GIFTS AND PRESENTED EACH OTHER WITH ORDERS OF THEIR OWN COUNTRIES.

    IT IS CERTAIN THAT DURING PRESIDENT TUBMAN'S VISIT HE WILL EXCHANGE VIEWS WITH HIS HOST OVER THE CURRENT TRENDS OF AFRICAN NATIONALISM. ONE POINT WHICH IS LIKELY TO ARISE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ARRANGING SOME KIND OF ECONOMIC COLLABORATION BETWEEN TUNISIA AND LIBERIA.
