  • Description

    Nineteen countries were represented at a give-day "summit" conference of non-aligned states which opened at the Central Government Offices in Cairo June 5 with a welcoming speech by the United Arab Republic Foreign Minister, Dr. Mahmoud Fawzy.

    The conference is concerned with fixing a date and venue for the proposed "neutralist" Heads of State meeting which would have to take place before the September opening of the United Nations General Assembly. It will establish a secretariat to organize the conference.

    Delegates will also be expected to draw up a provisional agenda for the conference, which according to the ideas of its original sponsors, President Tito and President Nasser, would try to devise a form of practical collaboration between the non-aligned countries, with the aim of reducing tension, between the Soviet and the Western block.

    Apart from that, the conference will discuss such subjects as disarmament, the ending of colonialism and the preventing of big powers from interfering in the affairs of small countries.

    States represented were: U.A.R., Yugoslavia, India, Indonesia, Morocco, Guinea, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Somaliland, Saudi Arabia, Ghana, Yemen, Cuba, Mali, Iraq, Nepal, The Sudan and Brazil.
