Background: The so-called Afro-Asian summit meeting opened in Casablanca on January 4th. King Mohammed of Morocco put forward a five-point plan for solving the Congo situation, and outlined policies which, he proposed, should be followed by African states.
Among those attending the conference are: President Nasser of the United Arab Republic, President Nkrumah of Ghana, President Sekou Toure of Guinea, President Modibo Keita of Mali, Ferhat Abbas, head of the Algerian Provisional Government, and representatives of Libya and Ceylon.
King Mohammed's proposals for the Congo included a conciliation conference of leaders of all parties and an advisory committee to be appointed by the United Nations.
He proposed that African states should set up an African consultative assembly. Liquidation of Colonial regimes in Africa, elimination of racial segregation and the building of a united and neutral Africa were among his aims for the African states.
