VISIT BY THE EMFP CR OF ETHIOPA
Statement by the Prime Minister, Mr John Gorton
It has been announced in Addis Ababa today that His Imperial
Majesty Haile Selassie of Ethiopia will include a visit to Australia as part
of a journey which he is soon to make to a number of overseas countries.
The visit is expected to take place about the middle of May and
to last about 4 days.
I am sure that all Australians will warmly welcome the
prospect of a visit by such a distinguished Head of State.
Consultations will now take place to prepare, in draft form,
a programme of engagements for those days when the Emperor is here,
and an announcement of these details will be made after the proposals have
been put to him and accepted,
CANBERRA, March, 1968
