    Background: Dacca was the scene of intensive lobbying on August 16 when the Yugoslav leader Radovan Vlajkovic arrived for talks on the future of the non-aligned movement. Mr. Vlajkovic, one of Yugoslavia's four-man ruling presidium, was seeking to salvage the non-aligned conference, which was originally scheduled for Baghdad. The Iraqi capital is no longer favoured for the summit conference because of fears the Gulf war will be a decisive influence. Discussions are underway to find an alternative. Mr. Vlajkovic is said to be trying to avert Cuban domination of a future summit by seeking Bangladeshi support for moving the venue to a suitable city. New Delhi has been suggested as a possible location. The Yugoslav leader was met at Dacca airport by the military ruler Lieutenant General Hossein Mohammad Ershad and the President, Ahsanuddin Choudhury.
