    Background: The debate on Namibia (south West Africa) continued in the United Nations on Tuesday (3 June) with calls for firm action to end South Africa's rule.

    Mr. Jaksa Petric of Yugoslavia called for a "decisive blow to ?oal with the last remaining bastion of colonialism, racism and apartheid."
    Meanwhile, five non-aligned members of the Security Council have proposed that the U.N. impose mandatory economic sanctions against South Africa in a bid to end its "illegal occup????" of Namibia.

    Guyana, Iraq, Mauritania, Cameroun and Tanzania were behind the move. They are preparing to submit a working paper on their proposal to the Council as a draft resolution later this week.

    The United States, however, opposed the imposition of mandatory sanctions against South Africa, while urging it to act in the immediate future to end its rule of the mineral-rich territory.
