    PRESIDENT SUKARNO YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) MADE HIS FIRST PUBLIC APPEARANCE SINCE THE BEGINNING OF OCTOBER WHEN HE ATTENDED THE OPENING SESSION IN DJAKARTA OF A CONFERENCE ON THE ELIMINATION OF FOREIGN BASES.

    IN A SPEECH AT THE OPENING SESSION THE INDONESIAN LEADER CALLED ON 'NEW EMERGING FORCES' TO DESTROY FOREIGN MILITARY BASES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD - STRETCHING FROM GIBRALTAR TO TOKYO.

    PRESIDENT SUKARNO SAID FOREIGN BASES FORMED A LIFELINE WHICH DOMINATED AFRO-ASIAN COUNTRIES. THEY SHOULD BE ELIMINATED IN THE INTERESTS OF WORLD PEACE.

    THE CONFERENCE, ATTENDED BY DELEGATES FROM 40 COUNTRIES, WILL CONTINUE FOR FOUR DAYS.

    PRESIDENT SUKARNO WAS TO HAVE SPOKEN AT THE LARGE SPORTS STADIUM IN DJAKARTA. HOWEVER, THE CONFERENCE WAS OPENED INSTEAD AT THE HOTEL INDONESIA. THE PRESIDENT HAD NOT BEEN SEEN IN PUBLIC SINCE THE ABORTIVE UPRISING OF 30TH SEPTEMBER, AND THE FOLLOWING COUNTER-COUP.

    PRESIDENT SUKARNO MADE ONLY A BRIEF REFERENCE TO THE DISTURBANCE IN HIS SPEECH AND DID NOT WELL ON DOMESTIC ISSUES.
