Background: President Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia and the Rumanian head of state, President Nicolae Ceausescu, held talks in Bucharest on Tuesday (19 November) about bilateral issues and international affairs.
The Zambian leader had arrived in the Rumanian capital the day before, at the start of a two-week state tour of four countries including the soviet Union, Iran and Yugoslavia.
The Rumanian Government news agency said that both sides had agreed that they were satisfied with the developments in bilateral co-operation. But the agency did not confirm whether the leaders had also discussed progress made by Rumanian copper prospectors in Zambia or future development aid.
In a joint communique published on Wednesday, at the end of President Kaunda's visit, the two leaders called for a new international political and economic order which would allow countries a fairer price for their raw materials. They said a solution of the energy problem should recognise the inalienable right of countries and peoples over their own natural resources.
The two Presidents also agreed that there were possibilities for increased technical and economic co-operation between Rumania and Zambia, particularly in the areas of mining, energy, transport, textiles and other industrial fields.
