    Background: M. Georges Pompidou, accompanied by Foreign Minister Couve de Murville, arrived in Tokyo yesterday (Monday) for the first ever visit to Japan by a French Prime Minister. They are expected to spend a week in Japan during which it's reported, they will put forward the French Government viewpoint on the entry of the People's Republic of China into the United Nations.

    The Japanese Prime Minister, Mr. Ikeda and his wife, along with cabinet ministers and leading members of the Japanese House of Representatives were at Tokyo's International Airport to welcome the visitors. M. Pompidou is also accompanied by his wife.

    Today the two Prime Ministers and their advisers spent an hour in discussions. The highlight of the visit takes place tomorrow (Wednesday) when the French Prime Minister unveils the statue of the Venus de Milo in the Tokyo Museum of Western Art.
