  • Description

    THE STATE IS ALMOST READY IN CONGO-KINSHASA FOR THE FIFTH AFRICAN SUMMIT CONFERENCE SCHEDULED FOR SEPTEMBER 11TH. THE MEETING OF HEADS OF STATE WILL BE PRECEDED BY A SESSION OF THE ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNITY'S (OAU) COUNCIL OF FOREIGN MINISTERS ON SEPTEMBER 4TH, WHEN A DRAFT AGENDA WILL BE PREPARED.

    THE OAU SAID IN A STATEMENT ISSUED A FEW DAYS AGO THAT PROBLEMS RAISED BY RECENT EVENTS IN AFRICA GAVE THE CONFERENCE IN KINSHASA A SPECIAL IMPORTANCE. THE SITUATIONS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, NIGERIA AND CONGO-KINSHASA ARE EXPECTED TO BE AMONG THE MAIN TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION.

    THE OAU SAID THAT WORKING DOCUMENTS AND DRAFT AGENDAS OF THE COUNCIL AND ASSEMBLY PREPARED BY THE OAU'S GENERAL SECRETARIAT HAD ALREADY BEEN CIRCULATED TO THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE MEMBER STATES.

    TOPICS TO BE CONSIDERED BY THE FOREIGN MINISTERS AT THEIR MEETING INCLUDE QUESTIONS OF DECOLONISATION, POLITICAL PROBLEMS AND ADMINISTRATIVE AND INSTITUTIONAL MATTERS.

    THE SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE UNITED NATIONS, U THANT, HAS ACCEPTED AN INVITATION TO ATTEND THE MEETING OF HEADS OF STATE BUT ON THE CONDITION THAT THERE ARE NO INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENTS OR CIRCUMSTANCES REQUIRING HIS PRESENCE AT U.N. HEADQUARTERS IN NEW YORK.

    U THANT'S INVITATION CAME FROM PRESIDENT JOSEPH MOBUTU OF CONGO-KINSHASA AND MR. DIALLO TELLI, SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE OAU.

    SO FAR ONLY TWO HEADS OF STATE OF THE OAU'S 38 MEMBER NATIONS - EMPEROR HAILE SELASSIE OF ETHIOPIA AND PRESIDENT NASSER OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC - HAVE ANNOUNCED THEIR INTENTION OF ATTENDING. AT THE LAST AFRICAN SUMMIT IN ADDIS ABABA, 18 OF THE 38 COUNTRIES IN THE ORGANISATION WERE REPRESENTED BY THEIR HEADS OF STATE.
