The Report urged the U.S. President and the Secretary of State to
"treat the subject of population growth control as a matter of paramount
importance and address it specifically in their regular contacts with leaders
of other governments, particularly LDCs."

The Report urged them to "encourage LDC leaders to take the lead in
advancing family planning and population stabilization both within
multilateral organizations and through bilateral contacts with the LDCs."

However, the Report cautioned the U.S. government "not to give the
appearance to the LDCs of an industrialized country policy directed against
the LDCs…Third World leaders should be in the forefront and obtain the
credit for successful programs," the Report said.

(Egyptian President Anwar Saddat, Indian Prime Minister Indira
Ghandi, and Indonesian President Suharto were among those honored by
the U.N. for their work on population in their respective countries. Sadat
and Ghandi were both assassinated in office, while Suharto was forced to
resign on charges of corruption, and other reasons. In the Philippines, the
U.N. awarded Senator Leticia Ramos Shahani a plaque for her advocacy of
population control before and after the Cairo conference where she was a
delegate.)
