7. Miss AIQUAZE (Algeria) ...

8. Realization of the right of peoples to choose their own future continued to be impeded by violation of the inalienable right of various peoples to self-determination and independence. Self-determination was the most fundamental of human rights and at the same time a prerequisite for the enjoyment of other rights.
