  • Description

    The United Nations Security Council has urged all countries to bar the monitoring of the elections planned in Rhodesia next month. The Council has already declared the elections null and void. The Council resolved to consider ways to expand and strengthen economic sanctions against Rhodesia.

    SYNOPSIS: The Rhodesian debate in the U.N. Security Council came to a head on Monday (5 March) when the non-aligned members of the council tabled a resolution recommending a "stay-away" policy for all countries from the elections.

    The UK Representative, Ivory Richard, threatened to veto the text unless it was "toned" down. Mr. Richard had said it was not proper to try and prevent people like media representatives from reporting the elections.

    Bowing to Western demands a new resolution was drafted on Thursday (8 March) but the United States, Britain and France abstained from the vote.
