  • Description

    INTRODUCTION: In India delegates to the Conference of the 25-member Co-ordinating Bureau of non-aligned countries have been arriving in New Delhi. This is the first international conference to be staged by India Prime Minister Morarji Desai's newly-elected government and follows his emphatic statements that Indira will pursue a policy of what he calls 'proper non-alignment". Observers in Delhi interpret this as indicating a drift away from India's recent close links with the Soviet Union.

    SYNOPSIS: India's Minister of Communications, Mr George Fernandes greeted some of the delegates to the conference on Tuesday (5 April). Among them were Liberian Foreign Minister Cecil C. Dennis and Tanzania's Junior Foreign Minister Mr Foum.

    Another visitor was Tunisian delegation leader Mr Sahban. Economic co-operation between third world countries and the southern African political situation are expected to be major topics during the conference, which, Mr Fernandes explained, almost ran into difficulties.
