  • Description

    South Africa has invited a United Nations representative to visit Namibia (South West Africa) to prepare a report on how the Western-backed United nations' proposals for independence for the territory would be implemented. The decision was made at a special session of the South African cabinet last week, following a controversial adoption by the United Nations Security Council of a resolution which would include the disputed port territory of Walvis Bay in independent Namibia. The cabinet held off announcing whether it accepted or rejected the independance package. In a message sent to the United Nations Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim, the cabinet said it had "misgivings" about the plan and would judge, from the report prepared by the UN representative- already named as Mr. Marti Ahtisaari of Finland - whether the present proposals were in line with terms accepted by South Africa in April. Later, Prime Minister John Vorster talked to Cliff Saunders of the South African Broadcasting Corporation.
