  • Description

    The National Front for the Liberation of Angola (F.N.L.A.) is now moving strongly into the political arena in the Portuguese African colony following a cease-fire announcement by its President, Mr. Holden Roberto, on Saturday (12 October).

    The cease-fire took effect from Tuesday (15 October).

    Mr. Roberto made the announcement in a recorded television interview in Kinshasa, the capital of neighbouring Zaire.

    He ordered his armed guerrillas to end hostilities, but to remain wherever they are and guard their positions.

    Mr. Roberto said the suspension of hostilities would permit the F.N.L.A. shortly to open an official mission in Luanda, the Angolan capital, and later in other areas.

    Mr. Roberto's announcement followed a series of talks between the FNLA and a Portuguese military delegation. The Portuguese also met with other Angolan liberation groups.

    The F.N.L.A. was the last group to end hostilities, and Mr. Roberto's announcement was welcomed in Portugal.
