  • Description

    Ghana's views were voiced at the Algiers conference of non-aligned nations by the Commissioner (Minister) for Foreign Affairs, major Kuame Baah on Friday 8th September. Ghana's Head of State, Colonel Ignatius Acheampong did not attend the conference.

    Major Baah urged the summit to set up an African Liberation fund and warned that time wan not on the side of movements fighting for freedom. "We have no cause yet for satisfaction with regard to the situation in Africa, where blatant racism and colonialism are still unashamedly holding away", he said.

    The major went on to condemn Rhodesia for its policies of apartheid and strongly criticised the South African and Portuguese governments for their African policies.

    But Major Baah did have some praise for what be called enlightened countries and organisations "even in Europe" who already extended assistance to liberation movements in Africa. He said that the time had come for such assistance to be properly coordinated and administered.

    In spite of advocation force as the only way to free the black Africans in Rhodesia, South Africa and Portuguese Africa, Major Baah also advocated co-operation as a way to peace.
