  DR. Kenneth David Kaunda. President of the Republic of Zambia. Madame B. Kaunda, and other distinguished Zambian guests arrived in Peking on February 21 for an official visit to China at the invitation of the Chinese Government.
Chinese leaders Chou En-lai, Yeh Chien-ying, Li Hsien-nien, Chen Hsi-lien and Wu Teh, and leading members of departments concerned, as well as thousands of people in the capital were present at the airport to welcome the envoys of friendship from the continent of Africa.
A warm atmosphere of friendship between the Chinese and Zambian people prevailed in the Chinese capital that day. The national flags of China and Zambia and colourful streamers fluttered over the main thoroughfare. Huge slogans hung on tall buildings along the main street read: "Resolutely support the Zambian people's just struggle to safeguard national independence and state sovereignty!" "Long live the friendship between the Chinese and Zambian people!"
The special plane carrying the guests arrived to the beating of drums and gongs and amidst an elated atmosphere at the airport. Singing and dancing, youngsters waved bouquets and colourful ribbons. They cheered: "Huanying, huanying!” (Welcome, welcome!)
When President and Madame Kaunda stepped off the plane amid applause, Premier Chou En-lai, Vice-Chairman Yeh Chien-ying and other Chinese leaders came forward to warmly shake hands with the distinguished guests. An enthusiastic and grand welcoming ceremony took place at the airport. The distinguished guests then drove to the Guest House where they were greeted by Madame Teng Ying-chao.
Chinese leaders Chou En-lai, Yeh Chien-ying, Chiang Ching, Li Hsien-nicn, Chen Hsi-lien. Chi Teng-kuei and Wu Teh met the distinguished guests on the evening of their arrival. Thoy had a cordial and friendly talk and were photographed together.
 Afterwards. Premier Chou gave a grand banquet in honour of the guests. Premier Chou and President Kaunda spoke at the banquet which was filled with a warm atmosphere of friendship between the Chinese and Zambian people. (For excerpts of speeches see pp. 9 and 10.)
On the evening of February 24, President and Madame Kaunda gave a farewell banquet.
Speaking at the banquet, President Kaunda said: We had the opportunity of meeting with that illustrious, courageous and respected leader, Chairman Mao. He once again imparted to us his great knowledge, experience and wisdom. He is a great man.
President Kaunda went on to say: The great wind of change in the world is now not only blowing in your favour, but also in favour of the oppressed and exploited whose cause the Chinese have championed for many years. Indeed, the greatness of China lies not m its large population nor the size of its territory, nor in its vast resources, nor in its military capability, but in its principles and commitment to assist the under-privileged, oppressed and exploited of the world to gain the most cherished of man's desires, that is, freedom of each people to shape their own destiny. Your belief in equality of all nations has been reaffirmed on many occasions, your respect for integrity and sovereignty of other nations gives the Third World a ray of hope and an inspiration to continue their struggle to maintain their independence in a cruel world.
In his speech, Premier Chou said: In the last few days, His Excellency the President has held sincere and amicable talks with us on international issues of common interest and on further developing the friendly relations and co-operation between our two countries. Satisfactory results have been achieved in these talks. This successful visit by His Excellency the President will certainly further advance the friendly relations and co-operation between China and Zambia.
Referring to the situation at home, Premier Chou said: "At present, the Chinese people, tempered in the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution and fighting with high spirit and militancy, have, under the leadership of the Party's Central Committee headed by our great leader Chairman  Mao. launched a surging nationwide campaign to criticize Lin Piao and Confucius.
"Lin Piao and Confucius were both reactionaries who tried to turn back I he wheel of history. The present campaign is a continuation and deepening of the movement to criticize Lin Piao and rectify the style of work. This is of great immediate significance and far-reaching historic importance in strengthening and expanding the great achievements of Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, consolidating the dictatorship of the proletariat and preventing a capitalist restoration. The Chiang Kai-shek clique, which has long been repudiated by the Chinese people, is vehemently abusing our criticism of Lin Piao and Confucius and has staged numerous farces in worship of Confucius. Social-imperialism and foreign diehards hostile to the Chinese people are also viciously attacking this campaign. This shows that we are doing the right thing. The Chinese people are determined to carry this campaign through to the end."
After the banquet, the distinguished Zambian guests left Peking by special train for a visit to Linhsien County, Honan Province.
An agreement on economic and technical co-operation between the Governments of China and Zambia was signed in Peking on February 24.
