  • Description

    Members of the United Nations Security Council have been discussing sending a team of experts to Zambia to assess the need of international aid. Difficulties have arisen because of the economic blockade imposed by Rhodesia which closed the border with Zambia on January 9.

    On Monday (January 29), in the Security Council, Rhodesia's actions were condemned by several delegations, including the representatives of Zambia, Ghana and the United Kingdom.

    Zambia had requested the Security Council meeting and the country's ambassador, Paul Lusaka, outlined a twelve point programme for dealing with what he described as an "extremely dangerous situation".

    Ghana's representative, Mr. Joseph Cleland, deplored Rhodesia's action and read out a "telegram of solidarity" sent to Zambia's President Kenneth Kaunda.

    British Representative, Sir Colin Crowe, condemned Rhodesia's action and expressed sympathy to Zambia on the loss of life in landmine explosions.
