The Indonesian Ambassador Discussed the Issue of Next Year’s Afro-Asian Conference

Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

According to talks with the Indonesian ambassador, there are some countries that do not agree with next year’s Afro-Asian conference; it is impossible to have a consensus like last time. It is possible to hold a conference of major countries; participants might be limited to only major [countries] and Afro-Asian countries in agreement. Such as: India, Indonesia, Burma, Egypt and our country, etc. After the conference, it is possible that a permanent secretariat might be established.
