    Background: South African leader, John Vorster, met Portuguese Premier Marcello Caetano in Lisbon yesterday (Friday) and said later that common interest made it necessary for their two countries to continue co-operation. Mr. Vorster arrived in Portugal on Thursday as the first stop on his European tour. He is accompanied by his Foreign Minister, Dr. Hilgard Muller.

    At a dinner given in his honour by Dr. Caetano, Mr. Vorster said that his country shared Portugal's distress at the hardship caused in Angola and Mozambique by what he termed "Communist inspired" activities and subversion. He paid tribute to the "sacrifices" made by Portugal's fighting men in the clashes.

    Earlier, Mr. Vorster went sightseeing around Lisbon. He toured the city in rainy, windy weather before returning to his hotel to prepare for the meeting with the country's leader.

    It's believed Mr. Vorster will drive to Spain tomorrow. He is expected to have further talks with Dr. Caetano today.
