  • Description

    Third World members of the United Nations Security Council tabled a resolution on Wednesday (29 June) which, if passed, would allow countries to pour unlimited military equipment into Mozambique. The proposal requested all states to give immediate and substantial material assistance to enable Mozambique to strengthen its defence. The proposal was in response to Mozambique's complaint that Rhodesian forces had committed repeated acts of aggression against it.

    The original draft resolution included the phrase "substantial practical assistance" which the Western powers said might be construed as a proposal to allow outside troops into Mozambique with the Security Council's authority. The sponsors of the resolution met this objection by limiting their proposed appeal to material assistance.

    SYNOPSIS: One of the resolution's sponsors was the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. A counsellor from their Security Council Permanent Mission gave his country's reasons.

    Another co-sponsor was Mauritius. Their Permanent representative, Radha Krishna Ramphul, explained some of the various points of the resolution.
