  • Description

    President Kenneth Kaunda has said Zambia will not look south to Rhodesia any more for trade routes. Its copper and other exports will be shipped on the partly-completed Tanzam railroad, being built with the help of The People's Republic of China.

    It was the first confirmation by Zambia of a statement made in Dar-Es-Salaam last week by a Tanzanian Minister that the railroad would be used.

    President Kaunda's statement was made during an emotional address at the opening of a conference of Commonwealth ministers responsible for Youth Affairs.

    He broke down and wept as he spoke about the six Zambians killed and 13 injured by landmines since Rhodesia imposed its blockade on the border with Zambia earlier this month. (Rhodesia said it had taken the action because Zambia had supported African guerrillas operating in the border areas.)
