  • Description

    In Singapore, President Benjamin Sheares gave a reception for the Commonwealth Prime Ministers attending their conference in Singapore. The reception, held at the Istana, the official residence of the President, came at the end of the first day of the conference.

    The President's reception followed an opening session of the Commonwealth Prime Ministers' Conference in which the chairman, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, warned that the issue of selling arms to South Africa could destroy the Commonwealth. Some African Prime Ministers have threatened to walk out of the conference if Britain resumes arms sales to South Africa.
