Download PDF for this date

The conference of foreign ministers of so-called non-aligned nations which concluded yesterday in Cairo adopted a resolution calling for support of the Arab position on Palestine. Seven of the nations, including Nigeria, Senegal, Togo, Nepal and Uganda, at first insisted on having their objections to the resolution entered on the conference record, but later withdrew their reservations making the resolution unanimous.

The foreign ministers also approved a resolution declaring that territorial changes brought about by the use of force should not be recognized. Another resolution said that frontiers should be respected as they existed at the time a country gained independence.
