  • Description

    Rhodesian leader Ian Smith told a news conference on Wednesday (January 31) that the closure of Rhodesia's border with Zambia had been a correct decision. He said it was purely defensive, aimed at combatting the movement of terrorists into Rhodesia from Zambia.

    He said the closure was not an effort at sanctions, but said he would only re-open the border when he received satisfactory guarantees from President Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia. He gave no indication of what such guarantees should be.

    Rhodesia closed its border in early January, cutting off Zambia's route to the sea.
