    Background: President Idi Amin, the man who deposed President Obote of Uganda while he was at the Commonwealth Prime Ministers' conference earlier this year, has made his first official visit outside Kampala. General Amin flew to Jerusalem for talk with Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir and her Ministers over arms sales and technical help for the Ugandan army. From Jerusalem, General Amin flew to London where he met Prime Minister Edward Heath. It's thought one of the major topics to be discussed in London is Ugandan security.
