    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ 6: BOUTEFLIKA: "...THIS ABSENCE IS MORE CRUELLY FELT IN THAT THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN THE FRONT LINE OF THE STRUGGLE AGAINST IMPERIALISM, AND FOR THE SOLIDARITY OF THE AFRO-ASIANS. THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SOLIDARITY WOULD BE SERIOUSLY IMPAIRED IF THE CONFERENCE WAS TO BE HELD WITHOUT THE PARTICIPATION OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY, AND OF THE OTHER FRATERNAL COUNTRIES THAT HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ALONGSIDE THE COUNTRIES WHO FIGHT FOR THEIR LIBERATION."
