In the United Nations, the Security Council debate on Rhodesia has resumed. Zambia's representative on?
In the United Nations, the Security Council debate on Rhodesia has resumed. Zambia's representative on the Council, Mr Kasuka Mutukwa, described the white-led government of Ian Smith as 'international criminals', who should be punished accordingly. Mr Mutukwa contended there was ample evidence that Rhodesians used South African aircraft bearing Rhodesian insignia to make incursions against Zambia, Mozambique and Angola. He was supporting a claim made earlier to the Council by Rhodesian Patriotic Front Member, Callistus Nolovu, that South African Air Force planes had launched recent attacks against Angola for which white Rhodesian forces were blamed.
SYNOPSIS: Mr Mutukwa said the Rhodesian black nationalists living in front-line states near their homeland were refugees, not freedom fighters.
Mr Mutukwa called for Security Council action on next month's Rhodesian elections.
