    Background: At the non-aligned summit at Algiers, the Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Es-Salam as-Sabah backed the right of all developing countries to "exercise their full sovereignty over their natural resources."
    Speaking on Saturday, the fourth day of the conference, the Emir also warned that the desire of some developed countries to create groupings "to defy the hopes and aims or developing countries" would worsen international relations and affect the world economy. He was apparently referring to western nations' plans to form an association of oil-importing countries.

    Sheikh Sabah told the conference that Kuwait proposed the creation on voluntary participation. He also urged non-aligned nations to co-operate more closely to safeguard their capital form the danger of international monetary crises.

    Turning ??? the Middle East conflict, he demanded that the Palestinian people should be given their "natural place among nations" which would allow them also to join the non-aligned movement.

    The summit, attended by 76 rulers from four continents, was due to finish on Saturday, but lengthy speeches made it overrun its schedule and the conference was extended to Sunday (9th September).
