Driving into Brussels in a closed car, the Shah was greeted by the Burgomaster and, accompanied by the King, then began a drive through the city in an open car to the Royal Palace.
Later, he laid a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Warrior. He is to visit Antwerp, Liege and the military centre of Elsen-born on the German frontier.
