    Background: THE FOREIGN MINISTERS OF THE ORGANISATION OF AMERICAN STATES, MEETING IN BUENOS AIRES, ARE TO DRAW UP PLANS FOR A HEMISPHERIC SUMMIT CONFERENCE. THEY AGREED YESTERDAY (17 FEBRUARY) TO DRAFT AN AGENDA FOR THE HEAD-OF-STATE MEETING IN URUGUAY NEXT APRIL, WHICH MAKES IT VIRTUALLY CERTAIN THAT THE SUMMIT GATHERING WOULD, IN FACT, TAKE PLACE.

    THE FIRST PUBLIC MEETING OPENED ON WEDNESDAY (15 FEBRUARY) UNDER POLICE GUARD BECAUSE OF THE CONTINUING LABOUR DIFFICULTIES IN ARGENTINA. DELEGATES HEARD A SPEECH BY PRESIDENT JUAN CARLOS ONGANIA, OF ARGENTINA. SEVERAL CLOSED SESSIONS WERE HELD ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.

    IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT THE GENERAL NEED FOR A LATIN AMERICAN SUMMIT WAS RECOGNISED BUT THAT THERE WAS A DISPUTE OVER THE TIMING. U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE, DEAN RUSK, IS REPORTED TO HAVE SAID THAT A MID-APRIL DATE WAS ESSENTIAL BECAUSE PRESIDENT LYNDON JOHNSON MIGHT NOT BE AVAILABLE AFTER THAT TIME. FRIDAY'S DECISION TO HAVE A HIGH-LEVEL GROUP OF EXPERTS WORK OUT THE AGENDA WAS REGARDED AS SETTLING THE TIMING DISPUTE.

    THE AGENDA IS TO INCLUDE QUESTIONS OF LATIN AMERICAN ECONOMIC INTEGRATION, TRADE TECHNOLOGY, AND MUTUAL AID, ACCORDING TO DIPLOMATIC SOURCES.
