FRELIMO had been granted observer status by the Committee on September 27. The Committee then concluded its general debate on the question of Territories under Portuguese administration, with statements by the representatives of Somalia, Tunisia, Poland and Guyana. The Committee decided to grant the request for a hearing from the Secretary of the World Peace Council.
