  • Description

    An attempt by guerrillas to disrupt the visit of Chilean President Augusto Pinochet to Argentina on Friday (April 18) was foiled by police on the eve of the Chilean leader's arrival.

    Police seized leftwing Peronist Montoneros guerrillas after a gunbattle near Moron airbase. But the incident didn't disrupt President Pinochet's visit. And he went ahead with six hours of talks with Argentina President Maria Estela Peron at the heavily guarded airbase.

    During their talks the two leaders discussed increasing trade between their countries and signed a new agreement. And the question of coordinating security procedures--at a time when both countries are increasingly concerned with internal security--was also discussed.

    In the gunbattle near the base the previous day, police killed two guerrillas, wounded two others and captured eight, including two leaders of the Montoneros.
