    Background: Mr. Artistide Pereira, Secretary General of the African Party for the Independence of Guinea Bissau and the Cape Verde Islands (PAIGC), told newsmen in Nouakohott, capital of Mauritania, on Thursday (February 14th) that 93 states would support the entry of his country to the United Nations at the next UN session. Last year these ninety three nations agreed to recognize Guinea Bissau as a sovereign state and condemned Port-ugal for its illegal occupation of what had formerly been known as Portuguese Guinea.
