    YOUNG:"And they told us that all of us were sons and daughters of God. And we began to believe it, and when you believe that you are God's child, then you certainly want to take responsibility for your own life. You certainly don't see your life governed by anyone else. And the basis of the understanding of all men women as sons and daughters of God is the basis of democracy in our time."



    YOUNG:"I have long admired the country. And President Seretse Khama has worked very closely with the Ambassador to the United Nations. And in terms of values and ideas, and the spirit of the nation, this is the world the United States, I think, has most in common with."



    KAUNDA:"In our analysis of the problem we will be proved right, that's one thing that's clear. If we are proved right then of course there is no doubt at all that it is not an exaggeration that we will be nearer and nearer towards another war. A (INDISTINCT) third world war. We might avoid this (INDISTINCT) possible to do that. But as you and I know and indeed your own great president, human rights cannot be traded."

    Background: Mr. Andrew Young, America's Ambassador to the United Nations, has said the situation in Rhodesia is deteriorating badly but might improve if an internationally acceptable solution was found to the Namibian problem. Mr. Young's comments came on a trip to Southern Africa which included talks with the leaders of Botswana and Zambia during the weekend (3 & 4 December). Mr. young has been accompanied on the trip by the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Mr. Richard Moose.

    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Young has already been to Tanzania and Mozambique on his latest African trip. The U.S. Ambassador has been visiting African "front line" states in a bid to find an internationally acceptable solution to the Namibian Problem. This, Mr. Young said, might improve the deteriorating situation in Rhodesia.

    After a meeting with the Botswana President, Mr. Young went to the anglican Cathedral in Gaborone. There he gave a sermon on the need for reconciliation in politics and religion.

    Mr. Young's first visit followed a similar trip to Southern Africa by British envoy, Mr. Cledwyn Hughes, who was told by both Dr. kaunda and Dr. Nkomo that there was no point in holding al-party peace talks on Rhodesia. On Sunday (3 December) Mr. young spoke to reporters in Botswana and the following day was present in Lusaka when Dr. Kaunda hinted the present troubles in Rhodesia could escalate.
