  • Description

    DESPITE UNCERTAINTY OVER THE AFRO-ASIAN SUMMIT MEETING IN ALGIERS, DUE TO OPEN ON TUESDAY, DELEGATIONS HAVE CONTINUED TO ARRIVE IN THE ALGERIAN CAPITAL. LATE TONIGHT THE ALGERIAN FOREIGN MINISTRY ANNOUNCED THE POSTPONEMENT FOR 24 HOURS OF THE FOREIGN MINISTERS' MEETING, WHICH WAS DUE TO BEGIN TOMORROW (THURSDAY).

    THE ALGERIAN FOREIGN MINISTRY GAVE NO REASON FOR THE POSTPONEMENT OF THE FOREIGN MINISTERS' MEETING, WHICH CAME AFTER TWO MORE PRO-BEN BELLA DEMONSTRATIONS IN ALGIERS TONIGHT BY STUDENTS. HOWEVER, THE GENERAL ATMOSPHERE IN THE CITY REMAINS CALM.

    AMONG THOSE AT ALGIERS AIRPORT TODAY AS THE DELEGATIONS ARRIVED WAS THE FOREIGN MINISTER, M.ABDULAZIZ BOUTFLIKA, WHO FLEW TO CAIRO FOR TALKS YESTERDAY WITH PRESIDENT NASSER OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC AND MR. CHOU EN-LAI, PRIME MINISTER OF THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC.

    WHEN THE MEETING FINALLY BEGINS, THE FOREIGN MINISTERS ARE EXPECTED TO DECIDE WHETHER THE SUMMIT MEETING SHOULD GO ON. AMONG THE DELEGATIONS THAT ARRIVED TODAY WERE THOSE FROM INDONESIA, INDIA, AND THAILAND. MEANWHILE IN LONDON, THE LEADERS OF 13 AFRO-ASIAN COUNTRIES ATTENDING THE COMMONWEALTH PRIME MINISTERS' CONFERENCE HAVE DECLINED TO CHANGE THEIR DECISIONS NOT TO ATTEND THE ALGIERS SUMMIT CONFERENCE.

    (DESPITE THE UNCERTAIN SITUATION, WORK IS GOING AHEAD AT THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY BUILDING IN ALGIERS WHERE THE CONFERENCE IS DUE TO TAKE PLACE. FINAL TOUCHES ARE BEING MADE TO ARRANGEMENTS INCLUDING TESTING OF THE SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION SYSTEM OF THREE LANGUAGES, ARABIC, FRENCH AND ENGLISH.)
