    Background: Delegates to the fifth Islamic Foreign Ministers' Conference joined the Malaysian Prime Minister and more than 8,000 Malaysians on Friday (21 June) at Kuala Lumpur's main "Negara Mosque" to pray for a successful conference. The five-day conference was opened later in the day by the Prime Minister, Tun Abdul Razak at Parliament House.

    Compensation for developing countries hit hard by the oil price increases is one of the issues the conference is expected to settle. The compensation is expected to be in the form of economic assistance for long-term economic programmes or by direct financing of projects through the extra revenue from the oil price increases.

    Tun Abdul Razak's opening speech was seen as an attempt to guide the conference to concentrate on economic rather than political issues. He devoted most of his speech to economic matters, but made a call for the meeting to mobilise all the resources available -- first at a diplomatic level -- to ensure that Israel desists from what he called "ungodly acts" "to annexe and Judaise the Holy City" (Jerusalem).

    Tun Abdul Razak did not mention the southern Philippines issue. It was later raised by the outgoing Chairman of the conference, the Acting Libyan Foreign Minister Abdel Ati Al-Obeidi, who said his country would press for a political solution to the problem.

    The Moslem situation in the Southern Philippines is one of the thirty items on the agenda. Among the other items are: the liberation of Jerusalem, Palestine, apartheid, racial segregation and support for liberation movements in Africa.

    Thirty-seven delegations from Africa, the Middle East and Asia are attending the conference.
