The Secretary-General or the United Nations, Dr. Kurt Waldheim, arrived in the Nigerian capital of Lagos on Friday (14 May), on the final stages of his African tour.
He was met at the airport by numerous government officials before speaking to newsmen.
He told them he considered the Southern African situation very grave and serious. He said it was evident that a solution of the problem of Southern Rhodesia and Namibia (South West Africa) could only be solved by majority rule.
Dr. Waldheim said if the Rhodesian government led by Ian Smith did not recognise this, then confrontation between liberation movements and the Smith regime was inevitable.
Dr. Waldheim discussed a range of southern African problems with Nigeria's leader, Lieutenant-General Olusegun Obassanjo and other officials.
