    Background: India's Prime Minister, Mrs Indira Gandhi, currently leader of the world's non-aligned nations, is attempting to mediate in the violent battles between rival Palestinian factions in northern Lebanon. An Indian government spokesman indicated on November 18 that, following a meeting in New Delhi of foreign ministers from non-aligned countries, a delegation would be dispatched to Syria and Kuwait in a bid to end the vicious fighting between pro-Yasser Arafat loyalists and Syrian-backed Palestinian rebel forces. The delegation will be made up of representatives of the Indian, Cuban, Yugoslav and Senegalese governments. The Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) sent Mr. Farrouk Khaddoumi, its political affairs director, to the Delhi conference as an observer. Sources stated that the delegation would try to meet with Mr. Arafat in the besieged Lebanese port city of Tripoli. They will also meet with the rebel leader, Colonel Abu Musa, if circumstances permit.
