  • Description

    The African group in the United Nations Security Council decided on Tuesday (31 January) not to put to the vote their resolution demanding a ban on investments in South Africa. The sponsors of the resolution agreed to await the outcome of talks next week between South Africa and Foreign Ministers from five Western nations. Western sources at the United nations said that, if the resolutions had been pressed to the vote, the United States, Britain and France were ready to use their veto powers. A representative of the African National Congress, Mr. Mfananfuthi Makatini, suggested the Western veto could be a 'systematic defence of the apartheid system'. A representative of the Pan-Africanist Congress, Mr. David Sibeko, said any refusal to use economic sanctions against South Africa would be 'hypocrisy'.
