Background: Greece's First Deputy Prime Minister, Mr. Stylianos Pattakos, has ended his three-day visit to Ivory Coast, and has gone on to Senegal.
During his stay, Mr. Pattakos had talks with the acting President of Ivory Coast, Mr. Augusta Denise, and the Foreign Minister, Mr. Arsene Usher Asxuan.
It was agreed that Greece and Ivory Coast should cooperate in all fields.
On his last day in Ivory Coast, on Wednesday (1 March), Mr. Pattakos was taken on a tour around the seaport of Abidjan. It is one of the more important West African outlets and has berthing space for 15 ships.
SYNOPSIS: The port of Abidjan was one of the last places visited by Greece's First Deputy Prime Minister, Mr. Stylianos Pattakos, during his three-day official visit to Ivory Coast.
With Mr. Pattakos as he arrived at the waterfront on Wednesday was M. Diko Garba--standing in for Ivory Coast's Minister of Transport and Public Works. In three days of talks with Ivory Coast leaders, Mr. Pattakos discussed many matters--and agreed that the two countries should seek cooperation in all fields. Trade would be one such field--and it was to see the export facilities of the port of Abidjan that Mr. Pattakos boarded a launch for a tour of the harbour. Abidjan is one of West Africa's major ports: it has berthing for fifteen ships.
Ships berthed at Abidjan marked the visit of Mr. Pattakos by sounding their sirens as the launch passed. Soon after his cruise around the waterfront, Mr. Pattakos was to travel on to another African nation, Senegal.
