    Background: LEADERS OF SIX COUNTRIES SUBSCRIBING TO THE CASABLANCA CHARTER BEGAN DISCUSSIONS IN CAIRO, UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, JUNE 15 ON WAYS TO STRENGTHEN ECONOMIC TIES AND POLITICAL UNITY AMONG AFRICA'S EMERGING NATIONS. THE SIX COUNTRIES ARE: ALGERIA, GHANA, GUINEA, MALI, MOROCCO AND THE U.A.R.

    PRESIDENT NASSER (U.A.R.) OPENED THE THREE-DAY MEETING WITH AN ADDRESS STRESSING THE NEED FOR ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL GROWTH THROUGH NON-ALIGNMENT WITH THE BIG POWER BLOCS. HE THEN TURNED THE CONFERENCE OVER TO BEN YOUSSEF BEN KHEDDA, THE ALGERIAN NATIONALIST LEADER, WHO WILL PRESIDE AT THE JUNE 16 AND 17 SESSIONS.

    THE ONLY HEAD OF STATE NOT PRESENT WAS PRESIDENT NKRUMAH OF GHANA. HE SAID PRESSING BUSINESS AT HOME PREVENTED HIM MAKING THE TRIP TO CAIRO. HE WAS REPRESENTED BY HIS FOREIGN MINISTER, AKO ADJEI.

    IT WAS REPORTED THAT THE LEADERS DISCUSSED, IN THEIR PRELIMINARY TALKS, THE POSSIBILITY OF ARRANGING A MEETING LATER THIS YEAR OF ALL AFRICAN FOREIGN MINISTERS TO LAY THE GROUNDWORK FOR AN EVENTUAL PAN-AFRICAN CONFERENCE AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL.
