  • Description

    THE AFRO-ASIAN SUMMIT CONFERENCE SCHEDULED TO START IN ALGIERS ON FRIDAY WAS POSTPONED INDEFINITELY TODAY (TUESDAY). POSTPONEMENT CAME AFTER THREE DAYS OF CONSULTATION BY A 45-NATION AFRO-ASIAN FOREIGN MINISTERS' CONFERENCE ON WHETHER THE SUMMIT CONFERENCE SHOULD GO ON AS PLANNED.

    THE POSTPONEMENT FOLLOWS CHINA'S THREAT TO BOYCOTT THE CONFERENCE, ESPECIALLY IF THE SOVIET UNION ATTENDED - THUS LEAVING HALF THE AFRO-ASIAN WORLD UNREPRESENTED. THE ALGERIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. ABDELAZIZ BOUTEFLIKA, HAD REPORTED A DISTINCT CONSENSUS IN FAVOUR OF SOVIET PARTICIPATION -- IN SPITE OF CHINESE DISAPPROVAL.

    (THE ALGIERS CONFERENCE WAS PREVIOUSLY POSTPONED WHEN THE MINISTERS GATHERED THERE LAST JUNE. IT WAS PUT OFF FOLLOWING THE ALGERIAN COUP THAT OVERTHREW PRESIDENT BEN BELLA).
