    Background: Three Russian-made deep-sea fishing boats were handed over to the Senegalese Fishing Authority on Wednesday (July 29). They are the first of ten boats that the Soviet Union agreed to build for Senegal under an agreement signed in 1965.

    The boats, specially designed for Tuna fishing, were built in Kiev. Present at the handling-over ceremony were the Soviet Ambassador to Senegal, the Senegal Minister of Rural Development, M. Habib Thiam, and top level officials of Senegalese Fishing and Port Authorities.

    The Russian Ambassador said that the programme of co-operation between the two countries would further reinforce the friendship and collaboration of the Soviet Union and Sehegal. It would do much to help develop mutual commercial interests, not only in fishing but in other spheres of industry and commerce.

    Replying, M. Thiam said his country placed considerable importance of Russia's co-operation. Senegal was grateful for the Soviet Union's active interest in the nation's maritime activities.

    The first three Tuna fishing boats were named, "Fadiouth", "Niodor", and "Lampoui".
