Chile's Right-Wing President Welcomes a Chinese Official
Gen. Augusto Pinochet, who often speaks out on his role in fighting
to defeat Communism in Chile, warmly received the Chinese Foreign
Minister today and gave a lunch in his honor.
President Pinochet, wearing a business suit, smiled broadly as he
welcomed the Foreign Minister, Wu Xueqian, to the presidential
palace. Their lunch took up most of the afternoon.
The visit by the Chinese official underlined the growing commercial
and other links between the two countries, which have maintained good
relations through nearly 14 years of rightist military government in Chile.
General Pinochet, asked a few months ago whether it made sense for a
strongly anti-Communist regime to have growing links with China, said

WAR, PEACE AND ANGOLA
By ALAN COWELL, Special to the New York Times
DATELINE: JOHANNESBURG, Sept. 16
With its raid today into southern Angola, South Africa seems to have
revived an issue that has lately been lost in the welter of its own
domestic turmoil: the continued presence of Cuban troops in Angola.
At the same time, the attack seems to have reinforced the feeling
among many commentators here that a resolution of the issue, which
once absorbed much of Washington's attention, is as remote as ever.
The Cubans first went to Angola during the civil war of 1975-76 to
support and insure the victory of the Popular Movement for the
Liberation of Angola against two other Angolan factions, supported
variously by China, the Central Intelligence Agency and South Africa.
Only one of those rival groups, the National Union for the Total
Independence of Angola, led by Jonas Savimbi, survives, sustained by
South Africa in a ''liberated area'' in southeast Angola.
