    Background: THE GENERAL CONFERENCE OF THE INTERNATIONAL ATOMIC ENERGY AGENCY BEGAN IN VIENNA YESTERDAY (TUESDAY). THE 98-MEMBER ORGANISATION IS DISCUSSING THE BUDGET FOR 1969 AND THE DRAFT OF A SIX-YEAR PROGRAMME FOR PEACEFUL USES OF NUCLEAR ENERGY IN SUCH FIELDS AS MEDICAL SCIENCE, TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE AND DESALINISATION OF WATER.

    THE SIX-DAY CONFERENCE IS ALSO EXPECTED TO DISCUSS HOW THE AGENCY COULD UNDERTAKE ITS TASK OF ENSURING THAT NUCLEAR MATERIALS WOULD NOT BE DIVERTED FOR MILITARY USES. THE AGENCY WOULD BE REQUIRED TO TAKE ON THIS RESPONSIBILITY UNDER THE NON-PROLIFERATION TREATY DRAFTED BY THE SOVIET UNION, THE UNITED STATES AND BRITAIN. SOME 8 COUNTRIES HAVE ALREADY SIGNED THE TREATY BUT UNCERTAINTY OVER SEVERAL KEY POINTS HAS DELAYED ITS RATIFICATION.

    AT YESTERDAY'S OPENING SESSION, DR. MANUEL SANDOVAL VALLARTA OF MEXICO WAS ELECTED CHAIRMAN OF THE CONFERENCE. MEMBERSHIP APPLICATIONS BY NIGER, ZAMBIA AND LIECHTENSTEIN WERE UNANIMOUSLY ACCEPTED.
