Background: The 16 members of the standing committee of the Non-Aligned Nations Conference announced on Monday, June 8, that the third Non-Aligned Nations Summit will meet at Lusaka, Zambia from September 6 to 10.
The question of which regime should represent cambodia at the Lusaka summit next September is to be decided by non-aligned Foreign Ministers, who will attend a preparatory conference and subsequently will meet for two days before the summit. Seven out of the sixteen committee members have recognised the exile government of Prince Norodom Sihanouk.
The committee also decided that the 74 nations invited to the non-aligned preparatory meeting in Dar-es-Salaam last March will be invited to Lusaka. Colombia will attend as an observer.
India's Foreign Secretary, Mr. Trioki Nath Kaul, was elected chairman of the committee which will meet until Wednesday, June 10. Mr. Kaul said an application by Trinidad and Tobago for membership of the non-aligned conference would be submitted by Zambia as host nation and it was expected the Caribbean state would be admitted.
The Zambian delegate, who is also the outgoing chairman of the Conference, said that his country had taken measures to ensure accommodation, transport and security during the summit.
The committee agreed that the summit would be paid for according to the United Nations formula, subject to a 10 per cent maximum for any one nation.
Members of the standing committee are: Ethiopia, Indonesia, Algeria, Iraq, Morocco, Yugoslavia, Sudan, Senegal, United Arab Republic, Burundi, Ceylon, Guyana, Malaysia, Tanzania, Zambia and India.
