  • Description

    During a United Nations General Assembly debate on the work of the Special Committee of 24 on Decolonisation, African speakers yesterday (Tuesday) attacked white minority rule in Southern Africa, and Portugal's administration of her African territories.

    Speaking during the debate, Tanzanian Ambassador Salim A Salim described Portuguese military action in its African territories as "wanton barbarism."
    Mr. Salim accused Portugal of unjustly exploiting the mineral resources of its territories and of maintain African labour "under far worse conditions than any known under slavery."
    He also accused the Untied Kingdom of helping cause "further entrenchment of racialist policies" in Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) by use of her vote.

    SYNOPSIS: In the United Nations General Assembly debate on Tuesday, the Tanzanian Ambassador, Mr Salim, attacked Portuguese influence in Africa and the minority regime in Rhodesia.
