    A SEASIDE RESORT SOME 12 MILES (20 KMS.) WEST OF ALGIERS BECOMES CONTINENTAL FOCAL POINT TODAY (TUESDAY) WHEN AFRICAN FOREIGN MINISTERS MEET TO PREPARE FOR THE FIFTH SUMMIT CONFERENCE OF THE ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNITY, WHICH IS TO BE HELD NEXT WEEK. SOME OF THE MANY HEADS OF STATE AND THEIR DELEGATIONS ARRIVED IN ALGIERS YESTERDAY (MONDAY).

    AMONG THE MINISTERS ARRIVING IN ALGIERS WAS DR. DAOUDA BADAROU, THE FOREIGN MINISTER OF DAHOMEY, WHO WILL HEAD HIS COUNTRY'S DELEGATION TO THE SUMMIT MEETING OF THE 39-NATION ORGANISATION.

    MR. MARCELINO DOS SANTOS ARRIVED TO REPRESENT FRELIMO, THE MOZAMBIQUE LIBERATION FRONT, WHICH HAS ITS HEADQUARTERS IN DAR-ES-SALAAM, AS AN OBSERVER FROM THE POLITICAL SECTION.

    MR. JOACHIM HUNLEDE, THE FOREIGN MINISTER OF TOGO, WAS ANOTHER OF THE MINISTERS WHO ARRIVED IN ALGIERS TO ATTEND THE CONFERENCE.

    BURUNDI IS TO BE REPRESENTED BY MR. LAZARE NTAWURISHIRA, THE FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. ETIENNE NTIYANKUNDIYE, THE MINISTER OF JUSTICE AND MR. MARTIN NDAYAHOZE, THE MINISTER OF INFORMATION.

    GABON'S FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. JEAN REMY AYOUNE, ARRIVED TO REPRESENT HIS COUNTRY AT THE O.A.U. SUMMIT. GABON'S PRESIDENT, MR. ALBERT BERNARD BONGO, ACCUSED THE ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNITY OF "DEFAULT" ON BIAFRA LAST FRIDAY (30 AUGUST), AND SAID THAT HE WOULD NOT ATTEND THE ALGIERS CONFERENCE. IN A NEWS PROGRAMME ON FRENCH TELEVISION, MR. BONGO SAID THAT HE COULD NOT GO TO THE SUMMIT "FOR I DISAPPROVE THE DEFAULT OF THE O.A.U. IN THE BIAFRA AFFAIR".

    AMONG THE TOPICS EXPECTED TO BE UNDER DISCUSSION AT THE SUMMIT WILL BE THE RELEASE OF FORMER CONGO PREMIER MOISE TSHOMBE, WHO HAS BEEN HELD IN ALGIERS FOR THE PAST 14 MONTHS.
