    Background: Following his visit to Belgium, President Tshombe of the Congo's breakaway province of Katanga left Brussels to return to his capital of Elisabethville on Dec 9. He was accompanied by M.Kimba, Katanga "Foreign Minister" and T.Rotschild, head of the Belgian mission in Elisabethville.

    During his visit, King Baudouin awarded Tshombe a high Belgian honour. Although Tshombe said in Brussels that his aim was to ensure the sovereignty of Katanga, Belgium did not give official recognition to Katanga as a sovereign state during M.Tshombe's visit.
