  • Description

    At the United Nations, the Security Council has been preparing to authorise a big United Nations operation to bring independence to Namibia (South West Africa). But there has been a last minute row over the future of Walvis Bay, the only deep-water port in the area. The South African Foreign Minister, Mr. Pik Botha, says a draft resolution declaring Walvis Bay as a part of Namibia is totally unacceptable.

    SYNOPSIS: The United Nations Security Council is the scene for another debate over the future of Namibia. Dr. David Owen, the British Foreign Secretary was asked about the five western nations plan for Namibia.

    The original plan would provide for U.N. troops to supervise independence, leaving undecided for now the question of Walvis Bay. But a new proposal would integrate Walvis Bay with Namibia from the start. Mr. Botha was questioned on Walvis Bay.
