  • Description

    Zambia has urged the United Nations to cut off oil supplies to South Africa, which it accused of fuelling the Rhodesian army. The appeal came on Wednesday (15 March) as the Security Council assessed Zambian charges that it was the victim of aggression following Rhodesia's recent raid against black Nationalist guerrilla bases. Zambian Foreign Minister, Siteke Mwale, said an oil blockade would halt Rhodesia's military machine. He also called for more material aid for the front-line states, which he described as hard-hit by the White minority governments in southern Africa. And there was support for Zambia from Tanzania's permanent representative to the UN, Mr. Salim A. Salim. Mr. Mwale was the first to speak.
