    THE COUNCIL OF MINISTERS OF THE ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNITY ENDED THEIR PREPARATORY TALKS FOR THE FOURTH AFRICAN SUMMIT CONFERENCE LAST NIGHT AS THEIR NATIONAL LEADERS FLEW INTO KINSHASA, CONGO-KINSHASA, FOR THE MAIN DISCUSSIONS WHICH BEGIN TODAY.

    BY THE END OF THE DAY THE MINISTERS HAD APPROVED 35 RESOLUTIONS FOR SUBMISSION TO THE HEADS OF STATE AND GOVERNMENT.

    IN HIS CLOSING SPEECH, M. JUSTIN-MARIE BOMBOKO, THE CONGOLESE FOREIGN MINISTER, DESCRIBED THE RESULTS OF THE PRELIMINARY TALKS AS A RECORD UNEQUALLED IN THE FOURTH-YEAR HISTORY OF THE PAN-AFRICAN BODY. "IT WAS A RECORD SESSION BY VIRTUE OF THE ATMOSPHERE OF FRANKNESS, COMRADESHIP AND TRULY AFRICAN BROTHERHOOD, ACTIVE AND DYNAMIC, THROUGHOUT OUR DEBATES", HE SAID.

    THE OPENNESS OF APPROACH HAD ENABLED DELEGATES TO PASS 20 RESOLUTIONS ON ECONOMIC, CULTURAL AND SOCIAL CO-OPERATION BETWEEN AFRICAN STATES; TEN RESOLUTIONS ON ALL TYPES OF POLITICAL PROBLEMS; AND FIVE RESOLUTIONS ON THE ADMINISTRATIVE DIFFICULTIES OF THE OAU. THE RESOLUTIONS INCLUDED REFERENCE TO THE ACTION OF NATIONALIST MOVEMENTS AGAINST COLONIAL REGIMES IN AFRICA, CONFERENCE SOURCES SAID.

    SO FAR, 12 HEADS OF STATE, TWO HEADS OF GOVERNMENT AND SIX SENIOR GOVERNMENTAL REPRESENTATIVES HAVE ARRIVED FOR THE SUMMIT CONFERENCE ITSELF, AND MORE ARE EXPECTED. AMONG YESTERDAY'S ARRIVALS WERE PRESIDENT KAUNDA OF ZAMBIA AND PRESIDENT MILTON OBOTE OF UGANDA.
