  • Description

    The Republic of Guinea's ambassador Abdoulaye Toure called at the United Nations on Tuesday for an immediate meeting of the Security Council, charging that Portugal was plotting imminent military aggression against Guinea.

    The 15-nation Council held an emergency session on Wednesday, and decided to dispatch a fact-finding team of three ambassadors to the area.

    It was the second time in only a few weeks that the Council had decided to send a fact-finding team to an African state because of complaints against Portugal.

    Last month the Council took similar action after Senegal accused Portugal of aggression.

    The following is an extract from Ambassador Toure's complaint to the Council. The film is supplied by the United Nations.
