    LATIN AMERICAN PRESIDENTS HAVE AGREED TO ESTABLISH A SOUTH AMERICAN COMMON MARKET REPORTS REUTER, QUOTING AMERICAN SOURCES AT THE ORGANISATION OF AMERICAN STATES CONFERENCE NOW BEING HELD AT PUNTA DEL ESTE IN URUGUAY.

    THE SOURCES HAVE SAID THE CHIEFS OF STATE AT THE CONFERENCE HAVE AGREED THAT THE COMMON MARKET SHOULD BE IN OPERATION BY 1985. THE FORMATION OF THE TRADING BLOC IS TO BEGIN IN 1970.

    THE CONFERENCE SOURCES SAID PRESIDENT JOHNSON, WHO IS ATTENDING THE SOUTH AMERICAN SUMMIT, WAS FIRMLY BEHIND THE TRADING INITIATIVE. THE CONFERENCE IS BEING HELD TO CONSIDER WAYS OF IMPROVING LIVING STANDARDS IN SOUTH AMERICAN NATIONS.

    AMONG THE OTHER MATTERS REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN RAISED AT THE CONFERENCE WAS A VENEZUELAN CHARGE AGAINST CUBA OF AGGRESSION AND INTERVENTION. THIS IS TO BE CONSIDERED BY A SPECIAL MEETING OF O.A.S. FOREIGN MINISTERS IN WASHINGTON AT A DATE TO BE SET.

    THE CONFERENCE AREA AT PUNTA DEL ESTE HAS BEEN VIRTUALLY SEALED OFF BY TROOPS AND SECURITY FORCES. MORE THAN HALF OF URUGUAY'S MILITARY FORCES OF 10-THOUSAND MEN HAVE BEEN MOBILISED FOR SECURITY DUTIES DURING THE CONFERENCE.

    SECURITY FORCES TURNED BACK A GROUP OF 150 DEMONSTRATORS WHO WERE MARCHING FROM MONTEVIDEO TO PUNTA DEL ESTE TO PROTECT AGAINST THE SUMMIT MEETING BEING HELD IN URUGUAY, AND AGAINST THE PRESENCE OF PRESIDENT JOHNSON.

    AT THE SAN RAFAEL HOTEL, WHERE THE HEADS OF STATE WERE FORMALLY GREETED BY THE URUGUAYAN PRESIDENT, OSCAR GESTIDO, DIPLOMATS AND REPORTERS WERE PREVENTED FROM WATCHING THE CEREMONY BE SECURITY GUARDS.
