  • Description

    AS THE FOREIGN MINISTERS OF THE ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNITY RESUMED THEIR MEETINGS IN CAIRO, TO PREPARE THE AGENDA FOR THE AFRICAN 'SUMMIT' CONFERENCE WHICH OPENS THERE ON FRIDAY, THE VARIOUS HEADS OF STATE BEGAN ARRIVING.

    THE TWO COMMITTEES -- PROCEDURAL AND POLITICAL -- HAVE ALREADY HANDLED MOST OF THE POINTS ON THE AGENDA, RANGING FROM RACIAL DISCRIMINATION TO AN EMBLEM FOR THE ORGANISATION. UNLESS THERE ARE ANY LAST MINUTE HOLD-UPS, THE FOREIGN MINISTERS ARE EXPECTED TO FINISH THEIR WORK TONIGHT, LEAVING TIME FOR CONSULTATIONS WITH HEADS OF STATE BEFORE THE MAIN CONFERENCE OPENS ON FRIDAY.

    THE CONFERENCE IS BEING HELD AT THE ARAD LEAGUE BUILDING, AND MOST OF THE DELEGATES ARE STAYING IN THE NILE HILTON HOTEL. OUR CAMERAMAN MET MANY OF THEM AS THEY RETURNED AFTER A MEETING OF THE O.A.U.'S MINISTERIAL COUNCIL LAST EVENING (TUESDAY).

    THE MINISTERS AGREED LAST NIGHT THAT A GHANAIAN PROPOSAL FOR THE DE-NUCLEARISATION OF AFRICA SHOULD BE PLACED ON THE AGENDA FOR THE 'SUMMIT'.

    LATEST NEWS ON THE ARRIVALS AND REPRESENTATIVES FOR FRIDAY'S CONFERENCE: THE IVORY COAST WILL BE REPRESENTED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY, GEORGE DAMAS, IN PLACE OF PRESIDENT HOUPHOUET BOIGNY; THE FIRST LEADER TO ARRIVE AND DE WELCOMED BY PRESIDENT NASSER AT CAIRO AIRPORT, WAS THE PRIME MINISTER OF ZAMBIA, MR. KENNETH KAUNDA.
