  • Description

    The Foreign Minister of the Provisional Revolutionary Government (PRG) of Vietnam, Madame Nguen Thi Binh, addressed the foreign ministers and other delegates who attended the four-day meeting of the organisation of African Unity, in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, on Friday (11 April). She spoke after the OAU meeting had been officially closed.

    She thanked the African countries for their support of the PRG's struggle in South Vietnam, and said that she hoped that her country would soon the completely liberated.

    Before the OAU meeting ended, the delegates of the 42 nations represented in the Organisation, issued a declaration that the South African Government's overtures for detente with black Africa, were aimed at confusing World opinion and dividing the black African countries. The conference reaffirmed its united opposition to South Africa as long as apartheid existed, and drew up a new list of sanctions to maintain the Pretoria Government's isolation.

    The delegates also threatened to intensify guerrilla warfare if negotiations over Rhodesia and South West Africa failed. These decisions were presented at the end of the conference in the form of a document to be known as the "Dar Es Salaam Declaration". There were two separate resolutions of Namibia (South West Africa) and apartheid.
