Abstract: We present here a new theory of non-leptonic weak interactions based on neutral F-spin currents of the SU, current algebra. Both CP conserving and CP violating non-leptonic processes are generated by the same primary interaction. This interaction is used to calculate the s-wave amplitudes of hyperon non-leptonic decays, the K1 -> 2pi decay rate and the decay rate of the CP violating process K2 -> 2pi. The neutron electric dipole moment, which depends on the violation of space-reflection invariance and of time-reversal invariance, is also calculated. It is found that in this theory the selection rule Delta S [not equal] +/- 2 has as a consequence the Gell-Mann-Okubo mass formulas and the FID ratios for both the axial vector current and the mesonbaryon strong interactions.
