    Background: India and Zaire on Tuesday (1 April) agreed on the need to defuse the Afghan situation by diplomatic and political means but proposed no specific solution to the problem. This emerged during talks in New Delhi between the Indian Prime Minister, Mrs. Indira Gandhi and the Zaire President Mobutu Sese Seko.

    SYNOPSIS: President Mobutu arrived in New Delhi on Monday (31 March) for a three-day visit to India. The stopover on his way back to Zaire followed a week-long visit to China. Before meeting the Indian Prime Minister he visited the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi.

    A spokesman for the Indian government said the Zaire President was in India to renew his acquaintance with Mrs. Gandhi, following their return to power in January.

    The two leaders held talks lasting about two hours on topics which included the situation in the region following the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan. The current state of the non-aligned movement was also discussed. President Mobutu informed Mrs. Gandhi about talks he had with Chinese leaders but a spokesman late declined to give details of the discussion. Both leaders agreed that the non-aligned movement was relevant as a constructive force in dealing with international problems.
