The United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Mr. Andrew Young, is continuing his African tour in Zambia and the Sudan after a controversial 36-hour visit to South Africa, where he called for change towards majority rule.

SYNOPSIS: Mr. Young had flown in from neighbouring Mozambique, where he led the United States delegation to a United Nations Conference on Namibia (South West Africa) and Rhodesia. Referring to the recent meeting in Vienna between U.S. Vice-President Walter Mondale and South Africa Prime Minister John Vorster, he said the signs for change were hopeful according to what the two men had to say.
On how black-white changes should be achieved, Mr. ??? said he generally opposed guerrilla violence. But sometimes, he said, there were other factors to be taken into account.
Later, before explaining U.S. policy on Africa, Mr. Young sang the black anthem 'God Save Africa' with South Africa's Kwa-zulu homeland leader, Chief Gathsha Buthelezi.
