    NZO: "The liberation in our country, the liberation movement has always enjoyed the support of the Soviet Union and through this support it has been possible for our organisation to maintain a steady onslaught against the criminal regime of oppression in South Africa. when the United Nations first adopted resolutions for the isolation of the regime of terror in South Africa. Others have implemented these decisions and resolutions. imperialist countries, mainly Britain, the United States of America, france, West Germany, Japan, have instead increased their involvement in apartheid South Africa."
