  • Description

    At the end of the Cuban summit, the 96-member Non-Aligned Movement looked set on a course independent of the two superpowers, but radical states led by Cuba appeared to have gained the upper hand on key issues. The movement's sixth summit conference, which ended in Havana on Sunday (9 September) after a marathon overnight final session, was often dominated by bitter wrangling between moderate and radical states over the future direction of the movement.

    SYNOPSIS: Yugoslavia's President, Josep Broz Tito, is--at ??? 87--the sole ??? founder of the Non-Aligned Movement. He seemed determined throughout the summit not to allow the Cubans to swing the non-aligned countries towards the Soviet's closing session, President Fidel Castro, who will preside over the grouping for the next three years, pledged that the movement will be more independent than ever.

    The summit severely criticised the West--particularly the United States.

    But an attempt to expel Egypt did not succeed--though its peace treaty with Israel was condemned.
