  • Description

    Ivory Coast President Felix Houphouet-Boigny on Friday morning received at the Presidential Palace in Abidjan a delegation from the Centre For World Peace Through Law, for talks on the choice of a site for the world organisation's next Congress in 1973.

    The two-man delegation comprised the Centre's President Charles S. Rhyne, and its Secretary-Treasurer William S. Thompson.

    The Centre For World Peace Through Law, a non-governmental member of the United Nations, was created in London in 1957, and aims to apply law rather than force to the solution of international disputes. It is active in 135 countries.

    In their search for a venue for the Centre's 1973 Congress, Mr. Rhyne and Mr. Thompson had already had talks in Ethiopia and Kenya before coming to the Ivory Coast.
