  • Description

    South African Foreign Minister Hilgard Muller said, at the United Nations of Friday (8 October), that unauthorised border crossings had occurred by both Zambia and South Africa, but that the crossings are unintentional, caused by the twisting river boundary. He categorically rejected the Zambian allegations about Tuesday's incident when, Zambia claims, South African troops intentionally crossed into Zambia, while searching for guerrillas after a landmine killed a South African officer.

    The U.N. Security Council adjourned Friday night, after hearing 11 speakers in the debate on the Zambia charges. Forty-six countries--39 of them African states--supported the Zambian protest in a letter to Council President Guillermo Sevilla-Sacasa of Nicaragua. The Security Council may vote on Monday (11 October) on a resolution which would condemn South African for "violations of the sovereignty, airspace and territorial integrity of Zambia."
