    Background: Delegates at the Afro-Asian conference in Cairo on Wednesday (12 January) avoided a serious split over a proposal to admit Bangladesh by agreeing to send a fact-finding mission to the newly-created state within the next two months.

    After five hours of private discussions, it was decided to form a committee representing the Secretariat of the Afro-Asian People's Solidarity Organisation (AAPSU) to make an on-the -spot study and to report back to the 63-nation body.

    The Pakistan delegation, led by Mr Mahmoud Ali, walked out of the conference on its opening day last Monday (10 January) in protest against allowing a four-man Bangladesh team to attend as observes.
