  • Description

    Both the Australian and the new Zealand Prime Ministers on Sunday (22 July) condemned the French nuclear test int he south Pacific.

    The Australian Premier Gough Whitlan said the act demonstrated France's disregard for international law and the well-being of the people of the Pacific.

    New Zealand Prime Minister Norman Kirk said the news of the test would cause dismay in many countries. He said he had directed that a strong protest be covered immediately through the New Zealand embassy in Pairs.

    France exploded the nuclear device on Sunday above Mururoa Atoll.

    IN Sydney many individuals demonstrated against the French test and there was a protest vigil outside the French Consulate.

    On Monday (July 23) it was suspected that France was to explode the second in the 1973 test series in the South Pacific. But no nuclear device was exploded. The weather over Muroroa was reported to be unsuitable.
