Moslems in Bosnian Talks

CASABLANCA, Morocco -- Seven Moslem ambassadors will meet in Geneva with representatives of the five-nation contact group to discuss Bosnia and prepare for a meeting at the ministerial level, Morocco's secretary of state for foreign affairs said Wednesday.

Tayeb Fassi Fihri spoke after a meeting on Bosnia of the Organization of the Islamic Conference's contact group. He said the group had accepted a proposal from Germany, the current European Union president, to meet in Geneva with the five-nation contact group comprising Britain, France, Germany, Russia and the United States.

The conflict in Bosnia and the plight of its Moslems is the top item on the agenda of Islamic leaders. They are expected to call for the lifting of an arms embargo on Bosnia and to offer to send more Moslem peacekeeping troops.
