<i> Reuters</i>

A European human rights conference scheduled to begin Sept. 10 in Moscow will go ahead despite the recent upheavals, Foreign Minister Boris N. Pankin told Soviet television Tuesday.

The meeting of officials from the 35 countries in the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe is seen as giving the West’s seal of approval to the Soviet Union’s higher regard for human rights under President Mikhail S. Gorbachev. For decades, the Soviet Union has been accused of rights violations.
