  • Description

    In Addis Ababa on Thursday (27 January), United Nations Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim paid an official visit to the headquarters of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) where he was welcomed by Mr Diallo Telli the Administrative Secretary-General. In welcoming Mr Waldheim, Mr Telli said the visit was proof of the U.N.'s interest in the hopes and aspirations of the African people's quest for liberty, justice, and progress. The UN Security Council is looking into ways in which colonialism, apartheid, and racial discrimination can be eliminated. Mr Telli assured Mr Waldheim that millions of victims of exploitation and oppression in Southern Africa placed high hopes in the United Nations Organisation. The U.N. is at present holding its first Security Council session away from headquarters in 20 years, in Addis Ababa.
