1. Under headline "NAM opposes war on Iraq" the
pro-government weekly "The Sunday Mirror"
dedicated its February 23 editorial to
embracing the Non Aligned Movement's (NAM) anti-
war position against Iraq. Excerpts:

2. ". . .The Non Aligned Movement. . .has already
stated that it will oppose the American and British-
led war on Iraq. . . The attitude by NAM gives the
world an additional ray of hope, coming as it is at a
time world mass opinion, a superpower in itself, is
gaining greater momentum against the its verbal
nobility into a pro-active crusade against the
murderers of peace."
