  • Description

    Delegates from all over Africa have been arriving in Addis Ababa for the Organisation of African Unity's O.A.U.) Ministerial Council meeting, due to start today (Monday, August 24). The meeting is to lay the foundations for the Seventh Summit meeting of O.A.U., to be held in Addis Ababa.

    Among the first to arrive on Friday (August 21) were Mr. Masisi, Foreign Minister of Botswana, and Mr. Khumalo, Foreign Minister of Swaziland. They were greeted at the airport by senior O.A.U. officials.

    Ethiopian authorities are taking strict precautions against the possibility of cholera entering the country, and each of the 41 delegates to the Conference were obliged to produce valid anti-cholera injection certificates.

    One of the main tasks of the Ministerial Council Meeting will be to consider a resolution adopted at the O.A.U.'s Liberation Committee earlier, condemning Britain's declared intention to resume arms sales to South Africa.

    During its four-day session, the Liberation Committee recommended the Ministerial Council to appoint a Committee of Four to follow the South African arms development , and also condemned France and West Germany for their continued sale of arms to South Africa.
