JAKARTA : Out of Alignment

August 25, 1992

Indonesia is hoping to head off a potentially embarrassing confrontation at next month's Non-Aligned Summit Meeting by taking over leadership from Yugoslavia at a gathering of member foreign ministers Sunday, prior to the opening of the full conference next Tuesday.

Iran has threatened to boycott the conference if it's chaired by the new, Serb-dominated Yugoslavia in protest over Serb-led violence against Iran's fellow Muslims in the breakaway republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

With the collapse of the former Soviet Union, the non-aligned movement is expected to chart a new path focusing primarily on economic development.
