  • Description

    REPRESENTATIVES OF 24 AFRO-ASIAN COUNTRIES, MEETING IN NICOSIA, TODAY (WEDNESDAY) HEARD DELEGATES FROM THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA DELIVER FURTHER CRITICISM OF THE SOVIET UNION. THE CHINESE, WHO YESTERDAY LABELLED THE MOSCOW NUCLEAR TEST BAN TREATY AS A "BIG FRAUD", TODAY ACCUSED RUSSIA OF "INSTIGATING INDIA TO ATTACK CHINA" BY SUPPLYING INDIA WITH MILITARY AID.

    THE SINO-SOVIET CLASH HAS SO FAR BEEN THE DOMINANT FEATURE OF THE NICOSIA CONFERENCE STAGED BY THE AFRO-ASIAN SOLIDARITY ORGANISATION. ONLY 24 OF THE 30 NATIONS INVITED ARE IN FACT ATTENDING. THEIR CHAIRMAN -- THE ONLY CYPRIOT PRESENT -- IS DR. LYSSARIDES.

    A CONFERENCE SPOKESMAN SAID THE TREATY ISSUE WAS NOW BEING REFERRED TO THE FULL COMMITTEE FOR THEIR OPINIONS AFTER A SUB-COMMITTEE HAD FAILED TO REACH UNANIMOUS AGREEMENT. ALSO ON THE AGENDA IS A DISCUSSION OF AID FOR WHAT ARE CALLED "LIBERATION STRUGGLES" IN AFRICA AND ASIA, AS WELL AS MOVES TO EASE WORLD TENSION.
