PERSONAL DIPLOMACY


....International friendship can be strengthened and deepened by the personal exchange of ideas between leaders of nations....


International friendships can be strengthened and deepened by the personal exchange of ideas between leaders of nations. In recognition of this fact, We received His Excellency, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Prime Minister of Ghana, during his visit to Our Capital last May, and We held highly useful consultations with him on matters of mutual concern to our two countries including the world situation. We have accepted the kind invitation which he extended to Us to visit his country.

And today, it gives Us great pleasure to draw your attention to the presence in our midst of His Excellency, Saed Abdullah Khalil, Prime Minister of Our great friend and brotherly neighbour, the Republic of the Sudan. His Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester, from Our ancient friend, Great Britain, will arrive in Addis Ababa next week on his second visit to this country as Our guest, thus re-affirming the close friendship which exists between the ruling families of Ethiopia and Great Britain....

November 2, 1958.
