    TRANSCRIPT SEQ 2: KAUNDA: "MY GOVERNMENT REFUSED ENTRY OF THE FIVE SOLDIERS INTO ZAMBIA. ZAMBIA DOES NOT RECOGNISE PERSONS CAPTURED BY COREMO AS PRISONERS OF WAR UNDER AN INTERNATIONAL LAW. ZAMBIA(GARBLED) WE HAVE IN OUR REFUGEE CAMPS WELL OVER 3000 PRISONERS WHO HAVE FED FOR THEIR LIVES INTO ZAMBIA FROM ANGOLA AND MOZAMBIQUE. BUT, ALL HAVE BEEN STRONGLY WARNED, THAT THOUGH ZAMBIA APPRECIATES THEIR STRUGGLE FOR FREEDOM., IN THEIR TERRITORIES CAN NOT AND DOES NOT TOLERATE THE USE OF ITS SOIL AS A BASE FOR MILITARY OR PARAMILITARY OPERATIONS AGAINST PORTUGAL. LET ME MAKE IT QUITE CLEAR, THAT WE ARE NOT THE AGGRESSORS, WE ARE NOT THE AGGRESSORS. PORTUGAL IS THE AGGRESSOR, PORTUGAL IS THE AGGRESSOR. ZAMBIA OF COURSE CANNOT TAKE A BLOCKADE OR INVASION LYING DOWN."
