  • Description

    Delegation from almost 100 nations and political organisations have arrived in Lima for a major meeting of the Third World -- the fifth conference of Foreign Ministers of the Non-Aligned Countries which after a preliminary meeting on Saturday (23 August), formally opened on Monday, (25 August).

    Apart from the 78 non-aligned countries, there are delegations from North Vietnam and North and South Korea who want to join. There are also delegations from observer countries and organisations, at the Conference which ends on Friday (29 August).

    Themes for discussion at the Conference includes??? the treatment of foreign capital; the formation of a reserve to regulate the supply of raw materials; a council for coordinating exports and a Third World development fund.

    The preliminary meeting held on Saturday involved the Conference Political Bureau formed by Algeria, Cuba, Guyana, Indian, Kuwait, Liberia, Malaysia, Mali, Nepal, Peru, Senegal, Syria, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Yugoslavia and Za???.

    The first Third World meeting was held in 1955 when only 29 countries sent representatives--in sharp contrast with its size and influence today.

    The aim of the group is to bridge the gap between the highly industrialised nations and the small or developing countries which feel that they have not so far profited adequately from the fact that they supply most of the raw materials required by industry.
