  • Description

    On the second day of the United Nations Security Council debate on a resolution calling on the Council to condemn South Africa's "aggression" against Angola, Zambia, supporting the resolution, expressly called for the withdrawal of South African troops to their own country.

    South African troops were reported on Saturday (27 March), to have left Angela. But during the debate on Monday (29 March) Zambia's U.N. Ambassador, Mr. Dunstan Kamana, said it was not enough to pull they troops back to Namibia (South West Africa). He said that the government in Pretoria had been silent on whether the troops had returned to their home republic.

    Namibia (South West Africa), he said, was not a part of South Africa, but an international territory South Africa was illegally occupying despite the abrogation of its old League of Nations mandate by the U.N. General Assembly in 1966. Mr. Kamana is President of the U.N. Council for Namibia which was set up to oversee the administration of the territory following the abrogation of South Africa' mandate.

    SYNOPSIS: On the second day of the United Nations Security Council debate on alleged South African aggression against Angola, Zambia's Ambassador, Mr. Dunstan Kamana, thought the issue also involved South West Africa -- Namibia.
