  • Description

    The South African Prime Minister, Mr John Vorster, has said he would like to believe that the United States had taken an interest in Southern Africa in order to keep Marxists out. He was speaking about the talks he will have in Vienna on Friday (20 May) with the Vice-President of the United States, Mr Walter Mondale. In Johannesburg, Mr Vorster was asked by an S.A.B.C. reporter about South Africa's position at the meeting.

    The U.S. Vice-President, Mr Mondale, is on a ten-nation tour which includes his stop in Vienna. It is part of a current spate of international diplomatic efforts to bring peace to southern Africa. In Mozambique, a conference organised by the United Nations has opened, attended by delegates from nearly 90 countries. Its aim is to increase pressure for black majority rule in Rhodesia and Namibia (formerly South West Africa). United Nations Secretary-General, Mr Kurt Waldheim, told the conference he feared a grave international disaster if efforts to bring peace in the area weren't increased.
