    SYNOPSIS: Arriving at Cairo airport on Monday - an aircraft bringing the President of Upper Volta on a six-day visit to Egypt. General Sangoule Lamizana was greeted at the airport by Vice-President Hussein El-Shafei and by the Prime Mister, Dr Sidky. As befits a visiting head of state, a twenty-one gun salute was fired as the welcoming ceremony took place. But there was no explanation why President Sadat was nt present. General Lamizana is visiting Egypt as the guest of President Sadat.

    President Lamizana will spend six days in Egypt. It's the first visit to that country by an Upper Volta head of state since Upper Volta gained independence in 1960. As well as Cairo, President Lamizana will visit the Aswan High Dam, and the Mediterranean seaport of Alexandria.

    Talks are scheduled between President Lamizana and President Sadat. It's expected they'll discuss bilateral relations and general African problems.

    Soon after his arrival. President Lamizana followed in the footsteps of other world leaders who've visited Cairo recently. He visited the tomb of President Nasser - there to place a wreath. At the end of his visit to Egypt, President Lamizana will travel to neighbouring Libya.
