Mr. Lusinchi, who overcame political imprisonment and torture under military rule, pledged in his inaugural address that his oil-rich country will repay its foreign debt ''to the last cent.'' Venezuela owes an estimated $35 billion to some 450 international banks.

Venezuela is the second leg of Shultz's Latin American tour, which continues in Brazil, Barbados, and Grenada.
