  • Description

    The fifth conference of non-aligned states ended in Lima, Peru, on Saturday (30 August) with strong criticisms of United States policy, imperialism and colonialism.

    The 82 non-aligned states at the conference represent more than half the world's population and a substantial majority of United Nations votes. They did not recommend expelling Israel from the United Nations, which had been thought possible, but some resolutions continued the threat if Israel fail to heed the United Nations by continuing to occupy Arab territory.

    African delegates were among those who resisted demands for stronger measures against Israel favoured by Syria and the Palestine Liberation Organisation. The PLO were only admitted as a full member of the non-aligned movement at this conference.

    The first section of the conference's 35 page programme dealt with Cambodia. It said the country had been liberated from the domination of American imperialists and a treacherous puppet regime.

    It also hailed the victory by North Vietnam earlier this year.

    The delegates called for an end to military bases in south-east Asia and the dismantlement of the South East Asia Treaty Organisation.
