Red Cross and Peace
A second Round Table on “The Red Cross as a factor in World Peace” should have taken place in Geneva on September 9–10, 1968, following the first, held in The Hague on August 28, 1967. However, due to the conflicts and tension prevailing, and the increased work thereby engendered for some of the people invited, most considered the meeting should be postponed. Whilst concurring, the ICRC noted with pleasure that the persons invited restated their interest in the work and the need to carry it on before the XXIst International Conference of the Red Cross in Istanbul, in order to submit certain definite proposals. It has therefore been decided to convene the second Round Table for January 1969.
