Background: The Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO), North korea, North Vietnam and Panama were all admitted to the Non-Aligned nations Movement at the fifth ministerial conference in Lima, Peru, on Tuesday (26 August).
However, the Movement rejected South Korea's request for formal entry.
PLO representatives were ecstatic about the conference decision to admit, and their hotel was the scene of great celebrations after the news was announced.
The Peruvian foreign Minister, General Miguel Angel de la Flor, who was elected president of the conference, said there was string minority opposition to North Korea's entrance.
He said the other mew members care in with unanimous support, but did not elaborate on the decision to block South Korea from admission.
Foreign Ministers representing the 78 member countries of the Non-Aligned Movement, delegations from nine countries with observer status and representatives of nine nationalist liberation movements are attending the conference, which lasts until 29 August.
Early discussions centred on new membership , then key political and economic issues concerning the Third World.
Yugoslav Foreign Minister, Milos Minic was one of the first to address the conference and said that Third World Countries "could now stand on their own feet and solve their own problems".
