  • Description

    INTRODUCTION: The United Nations Security Council has entered the second week of its debate on the situation in South Africa without agreement on how to deal with it. Several African countries have been pressing for a mandatory arms embargo and other sanctions against the Republic and have proposed several requirements that south Africa should meet. These are an end to apartheid and to the policy of creating separate tribal homelands, withdrawal from Namibia and compliance with the United Nations resolutions against Rhodesia, which South Africa has supported. African delegates have submitted their proposals in amendments to a draft declaration prepared by the United States and supported by Britain, France, Canada and West Germany. The 18-point declaration calls on South Africa to eliminate apartheid and end its occupation of Namibia.

    SYNOPSIS: (MUTE) Ghana's representative, Thomas B. Sam was one of the African speakers in the debate on Monday (28 March)
    (MUTE) Another argument in the debate came from the Kenyan representative, Francis M. Kasina.
