  • Description

    At a meeting of the United Nations Security Council, Gabon's representative has condemned South Africa's defiance' over Namibia. Monsieur Leon N'Dong, who is also President of the Security Council, attacked South African plans for unilateral elections in the territory.

    SYNOPSIS: Monsieur N'Dong was referring to the row between South Africa and the United Nations - which has put forward its own plan for elections. Further problems have been caused by a compromise solution agreed between the South African Government and five Western countries.

    Gabon's delegate said the Western nations had all met South Africa's demands - but not the demands of the South West African People's Organisation, SWAPO. The formula agreed by South Africa and the Western countries, according to SWAPO, deviates from the United Nations plan.

    South Africa is still intending to go ahead with its own elections for Namibia in December - unless all parties involved can find a solution before then. But the West has made it clear that it will consider the results of those elections null and void.
