  • Description

    Foreign Ministers from the American continent have gathered in Washington for a conference on ways and means of protecting diplomats and others against being kidnapped. The meeting is being held at the building of the Organisation of American States.

    The OAS delegates to the conference were welcomed by the American Secretary of State, Mr William Rogers.

    The principal proposal before the conference is a provision for extradition agreements applying to anyone indicted for kidnapping or for acts of political terrorism. But some American countries are expected to oppose this suggestion. Several countries have already given asylum to prisoners freed from other countries as ransom for hostages.
