  • Description

    Australia and the United States joined in the general condemnation of Rhodesia's closure of its border with Zambia at the United Nations Security Council on wednesday (January 31). It was the third day of a debate on a Zambian complaint that Rhodesia committed acts of subversion and sabotage in Zambian territory after the border closure.

    United States ambassador Mr Christopher Phillips told the security Council that Rhodesia's continuing obstinate refusal to recognise the principle of majority rule exacerbated an already tense situation, while Australian representative Sir Laurence McIntyre said there could be no secure future for Rhodesia as long as its existing policies remained in effect.
