    Background: The Antarctic will remain a "non-militarised area" - the only continent without military bases. This is the essence of negotiations just finished in Washington, USA, by the 12 nations at present occupying parts of the frozen continent.

    In an interview, Nov. 11, on his arrival in London from the Washington conference, Australian External Affairs Minister, Mr. Casey, said that "free trade in science" was the aim in the Antarctic.

    He said that activities undertaken within the Geo-Physical Year would be continued. Of territorial claims in the Antarctic, including the dispute between Britain Chile and Argentine over the ownership of Graham Lend, he said the agreements reached in Washington should stabilize the situation.
