Mbabane, April 17 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen arrived in Swaziland Tuesday for a four-day visit, during which time she will attend celebrations marking 50 years of diplomatic ties between the two countries, the Swazi king's 50th birthday, and 50th anniversary of Swaziland's independence.

On arriving at the airport, Tsai and her delegation were warmly greeted by Swaziland King Mswati III with a military salute and performances of traditional folk dances.

Shortly after her arrival, Tsai held talks with King Mswati III and is to sign a joint communique with the king before attending a state dinner.

On Thursday, Tsai will attend celebrations marking 50 years of diplomatic ties between the two countries, the Swazi king's 50th birthday and the 50th anniversary of Swaziland's independence.

She will present Swaziland with gifts from one of Taiwan's indigenous tribes, as well as five cows, which represent wealth in the southern African kingdom and are a traditional ceremonial gift.

During her stay in Swaziland, the president and her delegation will also meet with local officials and inspect medical, agricultural and educational initiatives that Taiwan has undertaken in the country.

There will also be meetings with members of the overseas Taiwanese community and business people in southern Africa.

On the last day of the visit, Tsai will host a press reception prior to a luncheon with the Swazi king, after which they will take a safari together before she returns to Taiwan.

Tsai is expected to arrive home at around noon Saturday.
