    WALDHEIM: "Well, gentlemen, the time was of course limited so it would be an exaggeration to say I have seen everything and I have talked to everybody, I say that I was able to most a cross-section. Of course I could not see everybody during such a limited time. I first met the Prime Minister and the Foreign Minister after my arrival in South Africa. We had a number of talks during the first two days of my visit in South Africa. Then I visited the country, I visited Namibia. I went up to the north and went down to different places in order to get a better impression of the views of the population in the country, and now, at the end of my visit during the next two days I shall again have the opportunity to discuss the results of what I have seen during these days in the country with the Prime Minister and I hope we will be able to make progress in regard to this question -- which is, I repeat it -- the independence and self-determination for Namibia."
