    Background: Malta has re-affirmed its aim for national independence through co-operation with its Mediterranean neighbours. This message was made clear at the end of Conference of Mediterranean Socialist Parties and Organisations in Malta on Saturday (25 June) but so far there's been no formal agreement.

    SYNOPSIS: An agreement is expected between Malta, France, Italy, the Libyan Jamahiriyah (formerly Libya) and Algeria.

    The Palestine Liberation Organisation representative, and member of the permanent secretariat, Abu Sayyed, read the final declaration.

    Malta's Prime Minister, Mr Dom Mintoff, has said his country's economic future is assured when the British leave. Mr Mintoff says Malta must be certain it will not be attacked and to achieve this it needs a guarantor. The final declaration was also read in English by the Maltese member of the permanent secretariat, Mr Joe Grima.
