  • Description

    STRICT SECURITY PRECAUTIONS WERE IN FORCE TODAY IN MONTEVIDEO AND AT PUNTA DEL ESTA, THE SCENE OF THE LATIN AMERICAN SUMMIT CONFERENCE OPENING TOMORROW. LEFT-WING DEMONSTRATORS PROTESTING AT THE MEETINGS BEING HELD IN URUGUAY, WERE ALLOWED TO MARCH AS FAR AS MALDONADO, A FEW MILES FROM PUNTA DEL ESTA, BUT WERE STOPPED THERE BY POLICE ROAD BLOCKS.

    THE PRESIDENTS OF 23 COUNTRIES - INCLUDING PRESIDENT JOHNSON - ARE DUE AT THE OPENING OF THE CONFERENCE OF THE ORGANISATION OF AMERICAN STATES IN PUNTA DEL ESTA TOMORROW.

    POLICE CLASHED WITH DEMONSTRATORS ON A NUMBER OF OCCASIONS TODAY, IN MONTEVIDEO, BEFORE PRESIDENT JOHNSON ARRIVED. STUDENTS THREW STONES AT POLICE AND RIOT TRUCKS, BUT WERE DISPERSED WITH THE USE OF TEAR GAS AND BATON CHARGES.

    OTHER STUDENTS MARCHED IN PROTEST FROM MONTEVIDEO TOWARDS THE URUGUAYAN COAST RESORT OF PUNTA DEL ESTA UNDER POLICE SUPERVISION, BUT WERE STOPPED AT ROADBLOCKS A FEW MILES FROM PUNTA, AT MALDONADO.

    THE PRINCIPAL CONCERN OF THE SUMMIT MEETING OF THE HEAD OF STATE OF 23 COUNTRIES IN THE ORGANISATION OF AMERICAN STATES WILL BE THE SIGNING OF A TRADE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THEM. THE GROUNDWORK FOR THIS AGREEMENT HAS BEEN DONE AND IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE SIGNING WILL TAKE PLACE ON FRIDAY.
