  • Description

    The Socialist International Conference began in Helsinki on Tuesday (25 May). More than 150 delegates from thirty countries are taking part in the three day session.

    The subject of Tuesday's discussion was the International Situation, and the delegates heard speeches from Israeli Premier Golda Meir and British opposition leader, Harold Wilson.

    Mrs. Meir said that Israel's people do not want to put their fate in the hands of the United Nations' Security Council -- preferring instead to negotiate for peace directly with the Arab countries.

    Former British Prime Minister Wilson said there was "great anxiety" about the lack of information on how Commonwealth sugar would be affected by Britain joining the Common Market. He added that millions of Britons will insist on proper recognition of the problem of New Zealand, with regard to Britain's entry.
