    SYNOPSIS: Marcelino dos Santos is the Minister for Development and Economic Planning of Mozambique's Frelimo Party. He began with greetings to the Soviet Union on behalf of Frelimo and President Samora Machel. Than he saluted the achievements of the Soviet Union's October revolution as a source of great ideas for Mozambique's own national liberation movement. Earlier this year, when soviet ex-President Nikolai Podgorny visited Mozambique, the Soviet Union and Mozambique signed a treaty of friendship and co-operation. Mr. Podgorny who has since boon replaced as President by Leonid Brezhnev reiterated the Soviet Union's support for the black nationalists seeking to overthrow white minority rule in Southern Africa.

    Mozambique, together with Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana and Angola have banded together into a strong faction in the cause of African nationalism.

    Guerrillas have operated out the Mozambique into Rhodesia. At its third congress held in Maputo in February this year, Frelimo was designated a Marxist-Leninist Vanguard party.
