The Palestine Liberation Organization — for the first time at an international conference — was registered as the delegation of “Palestine.”

The delegation was part of the 10-day International Conference on Education which closed here Thursday.

Organized by UNESCO, the United Nations Economic, Scientific and Cultural Organization, it was the first international conclave at which the PLO was recognized as an equal among 600 delegates from 121 participating countries.
