  • Description

    French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing has begun an historic visit to Portugal.

    SYNOPSIS: The French Presidential Boeing 707 which landed at Lisbon Airport on Wednesday (19 July) was bringing the first French President to visit Portuguese soil for 73 years. Portugal's President, General Antonio Ramalho Eanes, and his wife welcomed President Giscard and his wife to the brilliantly sunny weather for which Portugal is famed. During the visit the two Presidents were expected to concentrate on the problems of Africa where both countries once ruled vast areas.

    After a short military ceremony of welcome, the two Presidents left for Lisbon's Ajuda Palace for an exchange of decorations and presents. General Eanos was to confer on President Giscard the Great Collar of the Infante Dom Henrique - a decoration reserved for Heads of States, and was to receive in return the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour. President Giscard's visit was to last for three days.
